Michael describes his style of painting as "impressionistic with varying
degrees of abstraction".
"My approach to painting is to seek
to produce a work which reflects my emotional
link to the subject, evoking a strong
sense of place, by the use of colour and
"I believe that during the painting
process, it is vital that the paint be
granted some freedom to behave according
to its inherent nature. Thus paintings
are allowed to develop in an unrestricted
and organic manner."
"The process of painting is always
an intensely emotional one and my aim
is that the finished work should display
a unity between the spirit of the subject
and the action of the painting process."
Michael’s work has been sold widely
via one-man exhibitions and group
