Mike is a full time printmaker, specialising in wood engraving, lino and intaglio collagraph techniques.
Mike is creating 100 Views of Birmingham as a series of original prints. Inspired by Ando Hiroshige’s work but retaining the techniques and style of the work he has developed over the past ten years of printmaking.
This is a marathon of printmaking, with at least one different print in an edition of 25 being produced each month. Mike’s own prints are displayed in the workshop, featuring in particular his views of Birmingham.
In the past he has served as Chair of Birmingham Printmakers.
