Mike lives in New Zealand and graduated with a Fine Arts Degree and the Sculpture Prize in 1997.
His work over the last decade or so has evolved into photographically creating partially plausible truths; proposing new possibilities for the toys and models of childhood play.
And recently it has involved constructing and painting plastic kitsets with a war theme; a guilty pleasure revisited.

Mike has a number of works in public and private collections in New Zealand and in private collections in Australia.
