“Your artwork is exquisite and your talent inevitable.”
Michael usually seen wearing a polo shirt, rolled up jeans with converse sneakers (or sandals when living in Bucerias, Nayarit, Mexico) is casual by nature and intense with art. Painting alongside the co-owners of Academy of Art Canada in Toronto, Ontario for many years, he knows the best training comes from doing. As a disciplined artist, he paints every day. On his days off, you will find him reading books on art from his library or a local library.
Michael has been commissioned internationally for his portrait work and has sold still life and landscapes at D&E Lake Galleries in Toronto, Mudpuppy in Windsor, Artcite in Windsor and most recently in Bucerias at The Bucerias Art Gallery. You can commission work by him, take a Bucerias art class, or purchase one of his paintings now on exhibit at The Bucerias Art Gallery.
While not in studio, Michael is most passionate about painting landscapes and offers plein air art workshops for both vacationers and locals.
A Canadian living in Mexico. Normally painting in oil and en plein air, I have been exploring more vibrant colour palettes with mixed media and working in bigger shapes.
