Michael is best known for his stunning seascapes with Arran. His colours are vibrant and views of the island are clearly identifiable. He studied Art and Design at Leeds Metropolitan University from 1977 until 1981, after which he reverted to his passion for painting.
Michael's work is recognised in Galleries throughout Scotland. Colour and light are the main inspiration in his projects, as is the Isle of Arran which he looks onto every day from his studio.
