Mike has enjoyed a life long career in hairdressing, successfuly competing, as a hair artist, in many prestigeous hairdressing competitions throughout Europe. Mike decided to take the flowing and sculpted movements he found in his work as a stylist through to wider dimensions and decided to turn his attention to fine art.
This resulted in the completion of a B.A. degree then an M.A in Fine art at Birmingham City University School of Art in 2008.
Michael particularly enjoys working on large scale contempory pieces and allows the spirit of the piece to take over. He sees each of his sculptures and paintings as unique adventures and uses a variety of mediums including plaster, clay and acrylics to arrive at a final effect which follows flowing organic curves. His subtle handling of surface texture creates both spontaneeous and exciting elements in all his work.
Michael has an honest, passionate and deep felt relationship to his art. He has exhibitted throughout the Midlands and in Central Birmingham.
Below is a selection of Mikes work currently on display in Gallery at 12.
