Mike was born and grew up in Accrington in Lancashire; he moved over the Pennines to the West Riding of Yorkshire in the Sixties, to train to be an art teacher at Bretton Hall College.
Leaving teaching, he worked as a graphic artist in South Yorkshire and London before eventually settling in the Chester/North Wales area, where he has lived for over 40 years.
Since retiring from work as an IT consultant, he divides his time between painting and following Accrington Stanley Football Club; often combining the two interests, having painted many pictures of Stanley players and personnel.
He is a director of the Official Accrington Stanley Supporters’ Trust and maintains the Trust’s website OnStanleyOn.
