Mike is a local painter of rural and urban landscapes. His style is a mixture of traditional and expressive techniques in a variety of media, but predominantly acrylic paint. Having originally studied theatre set design, Mike went on to design visitor attractions and museum exhibitions, whilst receiving a number of painting commissions and holding several solo shows. He is now focussed on his work as a fine artist and tutor. Mike is a regular tutor at The Letchworth Settlement, demonstrates for art societies and has articles featured in
various publications, including Leisure Painter magazine.
Mike has been chosen several times to exhibit his work at the Patchings Arts Centre, Notts, as part of The Artist Magazine summer exhibition and in 2017 won its St Cuthbert’s Mill Award. He has taken part in exhibitions throughout North Hertfordshire, including Herts Open Studios, and is a member of Herts Visual Arts, the Society For All Artists and the National Acrylic Painters’ Association.
