Mike gained a Design Diploma from Trent Polytechnic in Nottingham. He then spent almost 20 years in the Middle East, where his wide range of design activities included interiors, furniture, landscaping, conceptual design and model making. Mike now divides his time between landscape design and construction and his various art activities.
Mike’s work is generally inspired by an odd thought or saying, which is then transferred to the ‘little sketch book’. After numerous re-workings a final drawing is made from which the wire picture evolves. Mike also works in wood, plaster, paper and clay, and likes to create pieces that make people smile (or laugh out loud). As well as belonging to various craft guilds, Mike exhibits in a number of galleries throughout the UK and at specialist art shows.
