Inspired by many of the modernist art movements, Mike's paintings are abstracted and reworked responses to old masters, Expressionist and Abstract Expressionist works.

Inspired by many of the modernist art movements, Mikes paintings are abstracted and reworked responses to old masters, Expressionist and Abstract Expressionist works. He paints rapidly, with the intention of capturing detail whilst retaining energy. He finds Expressionist art to be an emotive process.

Mike is currently a member of Studio Upstairs, a registered charity, providing artistic resources and support to adults experiencing mental and emotional distress and in drug and alcohol recovery.

Studio Upstairs has been a regular and important contributor to the Bristol arts scene with 15 public exhibitions in the last two years and collaborations with high-profile organisations such as Arnolfini and Picture This.
