Hi I'm Michael!
I'm a professional artist who lives in a small village on the outskirts of Chelmsford, a city in England, with my wife, three children and dog!
I was inspired to paint by my father, who is also a landscape artist. As a child, I would often sit with my Dad and enjoy spending time painting with him. Although my Dad provided invaluable advice and instruction on how to paint, I soon developed my own style. As a teenager I spent time visiting Dad's exhibitions, where I would stand alongside his work and listen to the comments and discussions from fellow art enthusiasts. It gave me great pleasure to see the enjoyment people took from Dad's art and I consider myself to be extremely lucky to be a full-time artist.
I decided to follow my passion and continue with my love of art once I left school, initially studying fine art at college, then from the age of 18 joining Dad in his studio at our then family home. I have shared a studio with Dad for most of my career. You’ll often see Dad in the background of my Youtube videos.
