There are few modelers who can produce accurate and detailed studies covering such diverse subjects as dogs, cats, African wildlife and the female form. Michael is one of the few who can achieve this goal working from reference books, his own drawings, photographs and observation. Like so many artists and sculptors, his studio walls are covered in this reference.
Michael is unusual in another way in that he is one of the few sculptors preferring to model in clay. Mostly wax is used for its versatility but Mick loves the freedom clay offers and is quite content to work around its limitations.
