Michael is a multi-award-winning Architectural Illustrator based in Bath. His highly detailed illustrations are entirely hand drawn, capturing the essence of a building, city or landscape through black ink on paper. The drawings are often amplified through singular blocks of colour, celebrating key features within the composition.
His illustrations have featured in numerous publications and galleries across the country and abroad. Michael’s work received a high commendation at the World Architecture Festival and presented at WAF 2019 in Amsterdam and later exhibited at the Sir John Soane’s Museum in London. His drawings have been shortlisted for the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize and twice selected for the Royal West of England Open Exhibition and awarded second place for the Architecture Prize in 2018.
Michael’s passion for illustration began whilst studying Architecture at the University of Bath; influenced by the city’s beautiful Georgian parades and townhouses. Drawing became a tool for understanding form, detail, atmosphere and overall composition. Michael graduated in 2016, receiving first class degrees at undergraduate and masters level. His final thesis received the European Architecture Medal and nominated for the RIBA Silver Medal. He was also awarded the RIBA Wessex Design Prize, the 3D Reid Student Prize and shortlisted for the Archiprix Top Graduate in the World Prize.
In addition to illustration, Michael works as an Architect with Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios in Bath. He is also a part time Teaching Fellow at the University of Bath and Associate Lecturer at The University of the West of England.
