About The Artist
Michael and his wife Yvonne have been visiting the Old Oaks as much valued guests for 13 years.
Michael's background is as a senior university lecturer and so has done his fair share of teaching. Michael has painted all his life ' so far'.
He is an active member of several art societies across the south of England, where he gives demonstrations, lectures and workshops.
His pictures in watercolour, oil, pastel and even miniatures have become widely recognised and his animal and bird studies are in the hands of many private collections throughout England, France and Belgium,via national and international exhibitions as well as commissions.
Michael just loves to paint!
