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.
