Michael Sanders is an established artist, painting landscapes and seascapes. After graduating from Art School with a Fine Arts Degree, he moved to Norfolk and become a well-known local artist. At the time, he was inspired by the nature around him and often painted landscape using watercolour.
As he began to travel more in Europe Sanders’ painting style evolved and he worked a lot more in oils, sometimes on much larger canvasses. He painted in Sienna, Florence and Paris and became more interested in texture and strongly contrasting light and shadow.
Sanders now has two studious – one in Cornwall and one in Norfolk. He has exhibited his artworks widely within the UK. Many publishers have reproduced his paintings as fine art cards and limited-edition prints. He also won a prize in the Laing competition and his work was chosen for the Royal Institute of Oil Painters annual exhibition in the Mall Galleries.
He comments, “From the moment I could walk I held a paint brush, and all these years later I’m still holding it and making a living as an artist. Painting has always been a kind of spiritual crutch for me – always there to rely on. I paint almost every day – of course I take holidays but am always desperate to get back to my paints.”
