Beautiful Inlet, Arran
Michael was born in Irvine and brought up in Stevenston on the mainland looking over to Arran. He studied art and physical education at Leeds Metropolitan University, thereafter teaching both subjects in England and currently in Scotland.
He has continued to paint in his studio in Seamill, Ayrshire, visiting Ibiza regularly to paint with marine artist Robert Arato.
Michael is fascinated by the colours of our coastline and the light bouncing off the water and sand.
