Mike's beach and seascape paintings capture the inviting and uplifting allure of the sea, with which he has had a life long connection. He has painted acrylic on canvas for 30 years and over the past few years his work focuses on the many Noosa Heads moods and perspectives. Vincent van Gogh said "If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere," and so it is for Mike. It is the beauty of nature that inspires him to paint. He says "if you are drawn into my art and want to be there, I have succeeded."
