Michael is a self-taught, fine art photographer and mixed media artist. He has loved taking pictures and bringing creative pursuits to life since he was a kid. Photography was a private passion until 2010 when Michael decided to work towards sharing his art with the world... and 2014 was Michael’s first step into the public eye.
His images, informed by a life surrounded by fine art, are intended to make you stop, take notice and feel a palpable energy in his work with the goal of making private and public spaces more beautiful and engaging.
Michael has exhibited his limited editions images in Toronto, New York, and Palm Springs. His images are in public spaces and in private collections in both Canada and the USA. Some of Michael’s images are donated in support of charities each year…often linked to an invitation to interact with his art.
I'm possessed by the desire to capture and make beautiful images I see, or conceive of, that are often hiding ‘in plain view’… discoverable in abstract shapes, lines, shadows, vivid colours and geometric patterns that are man or nature-made or found in the energy and vibrancy of nature, people and city life. I seek to reveal and amplify this beauty, coaxing light, media and materials to provoke emotional responses and ignite conversations.
