Michael’s artwork reflects a keen interest in people, architecture, landscape and daily life. Colour is also an important element in his work; he favours bold and playful tones. Art is an integral part of Michael’s life, as he spends two to three hours drawing each day. For Michael, art is a form of communication and social engagement, while providing a vehicle to process a range of experiences.
In recent years Michael’s preferred medium has become water-based oils on canvas. Michael is a longstanding member of the Brisbane Outsider Artists’ Studio at Access Arts.
Michael has recently exhibited in a series of exhibitions curated by Access Arts at St Andrew’s War Memorial Hospital including Time (2019), Dreams (2020) and Earth Footprint (2021). He has also exhibited in a series of exhibitions curated by Access Arts at KPMG including Celebrating Difference (2019) Journey to the other side (2020), and Visitors Exhibition at Brisbane Powerhouse (2021).
