With works in private collections throughout Australia and in over 12 countries world-wide, Michael is inspired by the magnificent views and lakes of his haven, the beautiful spa country of Daylesford, Victoria.
Perhaps best known for his commissioned painting of Sir Donald Bradman walking onto the MCG in 1937, with 20 limited edition prints signed by Sir Don himself, in his 22 years as an artist, Michael has mastered many different styles, using the wonder of nature’s colours as his signature.
His latest series of silhouette paintings is inspired by the gold theme of the 2013 Swiss Italian Festa. Initially abstract paintings, they slowly developed into studies of random objects and thoughts that entered his head to become silhouettes. The use of different mediums including 24ct gold leaf and graphite give each piece a distinct quality, slowly revealing their mystique to the viewer.
