Michael currently resides in South Surrey, British Columbia, Canada. He has studied fine art extensively, earning a BFA from the University of British Columbia. Mike's eclectic and thoughtful paintings reflect his interest in nature, philosophy, and spirituality. The goal being to create art that is both beautiful and engaging to the mind. His work hangs in collections in Europe, Asia, and throughout North America.
"In painting, as in life, my approach is built upon a foundation of creativity, imagination, and the appeal of the mysterious. I derive enormous pleasure from the exploration of colour, pattern, and design. While the mode might be loosely defined as representational, the method is highly intuitive which allows plenty of room for raw energy, traces of process, and liberal happenstance. Occasionally, I am compelled to 'work-in' areas of intense and ambiguous detail. All the while attempting to foster an energy of involvement. Creating works of art is about occupying the fulcrum between the absolute unknown and the moment of knowing - a wonderful spot to place one self."
