Mike's Purpose & Journey
"I have a passion for creating paintings, which allow people to pause momentarily from the concerns of the day & connect with the atmospheric British landscape."
Mike's love of painting started when he was a kid. Mike later qualified as an art teacher, however, his career path moved him away from painting and art. After over 30 years in adult training, he decided that it was time to pick up his paint brush again and paint - since then, Mike hasn't looked back.
Mike has a passion for creating paintings, which allow people to connect with the atmospheric British landscape. Mike aims to capture a visual, contemporary, atmospheric interpretation of what he sees. It's “the chase” of portraying a scene, through the interaction of light and colour that excites him.
Mike paints mainly landscapes, including urban, and use a variety of media to create my artwork - from oils, watercolour, gouache & acrylics. He mainly produce paintings from a combination of location sketches & reference photographs.
Mike undertakes and welcomes requests commissions, including from photographs. If you're interested, please
