Michael is an artist-printmaker who creates limited edition etchings, lino prints, fine art books and wood engravings. Images are figurative, narrative and located in the Yorkshire countryside. It is an imagined or remembered place. In the more vigorous of these country idylls; opposites are composed, reconciled: shadow and sunlight, water and woodland, valley and hillside. The landscape is imagined as an assemblage pieced together with vivid elements. People are dwarfed by the landscape. The variety of mediums used by Michael requires a constant reappraisal of the image to be portrayed. With the recent addition of wood engraving, Michael wishes to add even greater detail to his work.
