Michael is a 21 year old Central Victoria representational artist who works in the medium of oil paint. He captures a wide variety of subject matter such as still life and portraiture, but typically seeks the Australian landscape. Michael chases the light in his paintings and is passionate about tone, colour and atmosphere.
Michael can be found painting all across the Bendigo region in a variety of environments, from in Rosiland park or streets in central Bendigo City, to outskirt back lanes in the Whipstick.
Michael has held one solo exhibition titled: A Template For Change (2018)
In 2019, Michael traveled through Italy and Spain. Here he completed over 40 paintings of the landscape, and visited many galleries. Michael established connections with the Florence Classical Arts Academy and will be training there in the future.
Michael is a student of professional artist Ben Winspear, and has been under his tuition for 2 years.
