Michael is a Noongar artist living in Midland, Western Australia. His mother is from Narrogin. Michael utilises bright colours in his paintings, and says he finds inspiration for his art from his culture. He explains that it is the hardships in his life that motivate him to make art; it is something he enjoys doing and makes him happy. The meaning behind his work is spontaneous, based on what he is feeling while painting, and often includes impressions of friends as well as personal stories.
