Mike has painted on and off all his life but prolifically in the last six years.

I paint what I love, sparsely populated beaches with big skies and wide shallows and rain-drenched city streets that sparkle with reflective light. Of course, both these places are animated with human activity such as beach walkers or those braving the elements of a rainy day, adding to the appeal of such scenes.

My paintings aren't acquired because they match the curtains - they are windows in themselves. They offer glimpses of where we have been or where we would like to be, places where the soul can linger for a while and rest.

Mike has won numerous awards in the last few years and is also a contributing feature writer for the Australian Artist magazine and The Artist magazine in the UK and last year had an article published in the Australian Medical Journal on the value of artwork on waiting room walls.

Mike is a fellow of the Royal South Australian Society of Arts.
