Mike is an artist living in North Devon. The local environment has become a constant source of his inspiration. The rural landscape of North Devon with its high hedgerows and narrow roads are a stimulus for Mike's art with such features as overgrown gateways and field hedgerows with majestic oak trees bordering meadows rich in grasses and wild flowers.

Mike is a member of North Devon Arts with whom he regularly exhibits. He has work displayed in the permanent exhibition at Broomhill Art Hotel and Sculpture Gardens near Barnstaple. He is also represented by two other galleries in Devon namely Echo Beach Gallery at Ilfracombe and at Gallery 39 in Barnstaple where mainly smaller paintings are on display.

For many years Mike has been a participant in the North Devon Art Trek, which is an open studio event spread over two or three weekends generally in early summer. In May 2010 the "Artists and Illustrators" magazine published some of Mike's work in a feature exploring a contemporary approach to the Great British Landscape.
