Michael O'Brien - Artist & Illustrator

About Me

Michael was born in Nottingham and learned his craft in the early 1950s before venturing into a commercial art career that has spanned over 60 years.

He has won many awards for his art, one being via a competition in the Nottingham Guardian newspaper where Michael was presented with his prize by the famous comic duo, Laurel & Hardy at the Nottingham Empire.

Michael has been a member of the Nottingham Society of Artists since 1954 and still exhibits with them, plus other local exhibitions.

Today he likes to concentrate on his favourite topics: Portraiture, Animals, Landscapes and Architectural paintings. Michael also delivers talks and demonstrations to art groups.
