Michael Wheeley         painter & sculptor

Much of my work reflects on my life as a hairdresser. I specialised in artistic fantasy creations for the competion world of hairdressing. As an active member of the British World Championships team for six years, I demonstrated my skills and won many prizes throughout Europe

On retiring I studied at Birmingham City University achieving a B.A. and M.A. in Fine Art. My inspiration is from my life's work and people's response to it. I love bright colours, texture and movement.

When I create art my hope is to stimulate an emotional response and pleasure for the viewer. I believe that every time I work with any medium, part of me goes into it. Once the creative unfolding begins spontaneity takes over, I enjoy the process and create.
