Painting is what really inspires Mike; he works directly in an expressive manner in oil, acrylic, pastel or watercolour, using bright colours, applied boldly. For his most recent body of work, Mike has embarked on a large series of musicians, performing, with his aim of bringing the performance alive.
"I love the excitement in using bright colours, applied boldly. Technically I like to experiment with all sorts of marks, applied often with pieces of card, palette knives and brushes."
