Michael says of his work:“Currently my work tries to convey a sense of poetry from things I have seen. With the constructions and other work I am translating a subject into an object – distilling and pairing down – so what remains is similar to a visual Haiku. Although there maybe conceptual reasons for using certain motifs, the pieces remain very simple and have to work visually – we don’t need to understand all these things, just to stand under them! Printmaking also suits me as again the best prints are edited down to a few colours or none at all."

Born in Dorset, 1960, Michael has lived in Scotland since the mid 80's. He currently works as a collaborative master printmaker at Peacock Visual Arts in Aberdeen and has taught various printmaking classes and bookbinding courses for many years. Michael has also worked with a great number of artists from Scotland and further afield. His own art includes prints, wood constructions and artist books. In 2007, he undertook a short residency in Italy, which has informed much of his imagery since then. Recently, he gave a presentation on his work in the Orkney Islands. Michael has been a visiting lecturer at numerous educational facilities, teaching printmaking and bookbinding. He has exhibited in the U.S.A., Netherlands, South Africa, Italy, and the UK.
