Michael’s work focuses on reinterpreting characters from mythology and fairy tales. Self-taught as a watercolour painter, Michael explores roles of feminine power, turning victim into victor. Worlds of wonder and mystery evoke feelings of strength, anger, melancholy and joy. Villains are vanquished, and creatures are empowered in large, vibrant watercolour landscapes.

Gathering tales from the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Anderson and stories from Greek, Roman and Russian folklore, Michael explores how strength and vulnerability can coexist in the same figure. His purpose is twofold, empowering the female figure by telling their story using contemporary values and at the same time, gathering strength into the world. More info here.
