Michael's emotional connection to natural beauty began at a very early age while growing up in the county of Devon. This picturesque region of the south west of England boasts an abundance of lush forests, soft rolling pastures, clear rivers and two stunning coastlines. It was here where Michael's earliest inspiration began for artistically expressing his affection for his place of birth.

In 1998, Michael realized his life-long dream of making California his home which has become a new source of inspiration for his oils on canvas. His love for the scenery around the coast and country continues to provide an endless fascination.

As the rolling hills of the Central Coast turn into shades of gold, thoughts turn to the landscape of Tuscany, an area that Michael feels passionately about. Those Italian influences often find their way onto Michael's canvases.

"Beauty is always at the core of his work, immersed in human emotion".

Michael's style is a unique and personal reflection of his passions and emotions, which he endeavors to capture on canvas using many layers of complex oils with light textures in his unique and colorful style.

"It t is not enough for me to simply paint the beauty that I see says Michael, I want to capture the spirit, the emotional attachment and the deep connection that we feel from a certain place".

Private collectors of Michael's work have often spoken poetically in expressing their experience of Michael's Art. Serene, magical, atmospheric, inviting and even heavenly are some of the descriptions that are used to convey their emotional connections. It is these unique connections that Michael finds the most gratifying.

Michael's originals are exhibited in galleries and venues around California's central coast.
