Originally from Birmingham, England and born in 1938, Michael studied painting at the Royal College of Art at the same time as David Hockney.

Michael divided his activities between performance work and small, quiet, beautiful gouaches in a time when everyone else seemed to be doing big messy paintings. Many of these paintings were exhibited after his death at The Henry Peacock Gallery.

He taught painting at the Royal Academy in London.

Mike was an original member of The Flying Lizards, appearing on the first single 'Summertime Blues'. He was respected, sometimes derided and greatly loved for his intelligence, ideas, his sense of exploration, involvement, his concern that life should be fun and be intelligent in the same moment.

Michael died in October 2002.
