A sensitive portraitist, Michael is frequently commissioned to paint individuals and groups. Travel remains an important source of inspiration for Michael’s work. Driven by a love for plein air sketching and painting from life, Michael’s recent trips have taken him to India, East Africa, the Middle East, Europe, the Caribbean and North America. He has twice been appointed war artist to the British Military, accompanying troops to Helmand Province in 2011 and again in 2013.
