Michael Morgan is a member of the prestigious Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours and a founding Academician at The South West Academy of Fine and Applied Arts.
He holds the RI Medal for his outstanding work and was awarded their Rowland Hilder Landscape Prize in 2001.
Michael's innovative and much sought after paintings have been illustrated or featured in many publications. The first edition of his 2004 book "Michael Morgan RI" has sold out. The revised enlarged and updated second edition was released in May 2006. It contains 30 new paintings along with the original 100.
He has based his approach to picture making on Goethe's simple advice that the art of painting is to see beyond the every day familiar vision of things. This he has done with astonishing success. Michael's style is distinctive, with his trademark "isolated cottage" set usually in moorland scenery. No animate objects disturb the scene. Collectors find pleasure in constantly scanning the works for new subtleties to emerge.
