Now better known as The Blackboard Artist, Michael travels the country designing stunning blackboards and other signage for restaurants, bars, coffee shops and lots of other independent businesses.
Michael has worked with established companies such as Soho House, Virgin, Strada, Everyman Cinema, Big Easy and Simmons Bars.
During COVID lockdowns Michael turned to teaching, running online Zoom lessons for blackboard enthusiasts.
Try your very best to turn every negative into a positive. Seven years ago when I started working on blackboards I was low in confidence and working in a pub kitchen as a kitchen porter, but I worked really hard to build my business on the side, as I knew painting was one of my passions.
