Dog and Mike Painting at Margery Shotton

Welcome

My name is Michael Featherstone, I am an artist and writer based in the North East of England. I love paint and like to try to represent the subject using simple brush strokes, especially with portraits. I like the boldness of Van Gogh, the Fauves, the Expressionists and many more. I am also interested in buildings as a record of a particular time and place. My conceptual paintings and sculptured boxes represent the mind and spaces. Many of my paintings feature roads that are a metaphor for the mind's journey through life.

I am also a writer on the subject of Life After Death. More on this can be read here.
