Painting tutor Michael Long.

Mike Long

Mike Long

Michael grew up in Bristol and later trained at the West of England College of Art. He apprenticed as a designer and reproduction artist which led to a teaching role at Brunel Technical College, where he became the senior tutor in Graphic Design. Michael has also worked as a freelance book designer and illustrator, most notably the Mammal Evolution published by the Natural History Museum in 1986.

The majority of Michael’s work has been landscapes in oil and acrylics, often in a classical style. More recently, he has concentrated on interpreting landscapes in vivid colours, creating visually striking expressionist paintings. His work has been exhibited widely and there is a permanent exhibition of his work at The Paragon Gallery, Cheltenham. He has an easy teaching style that comes with years of experience. He is a true gentleman and highly skilled artist.
