Mike lives in a small village in Lancashire and works as a family mediator. Having always had a very strong interest in art, he started painting in his 50’s for pleasure, attending an oil painting class run by the artist Chris Mcloughlin, who remains a friend and guide. He now devotes more of his time to art, developing his own process and style to the point where he sells his work.
His aim is to capture something of the beauty of his local environment and the Lancashire countryside and villages on his doorstep. He works in oils.
