About the artist

Michael and his wife, Yvonne, have been visiting the Old Oaks as much valued guests for 18 years. Michael's background is as a senior university lecturer and so has done his fair share of teaching. He is an active member of several art societies across the south of England, where he gives demonstrations, lectures and workshops.

His pictures in watercolour, oil, pastel and even miniatures have become widely recognised and his animal and bird studies are in the hands of many private collections throughout England, France and Belgium, via national and international exhibitions as well as commissions. Michael just loves to paint!

Here's what Michael's students had to say

'The painting course was excellent. Michael adapted to our needs and was attentive but not overly so.
Another visit and another course may be necessary!'

'Four very rewarding and worthwhile days, excellent holiday.'

'Michael is a great teacher with many years of experience in teaching and art. I personally got a lot out of this course and had great fun with a great group of people'.

'Michaels enthusiasm equalled his ability and patience and we all produced out own little works of art. Well recommended and thank you'

'For anyone that wants to try their hand at painting ...DO IT. Really, really enjoyable, relaxing fun. Mr Carter, the tutor is excellent and very patient'.
