Mike grew up in Waterloo, Ontario and was intensely interested in both art and science from a young age. He attended university for fine arts briefly in 1995 and then, choosing to develop his art practice on his own terms, he instead pursued a career in the earth sciences. He has worked in environmental science and mineral exploration in Northern Canada for 12 years while devoting himself rigorously to artwork during off-seasons. His work has been exhibited in galleries in Vancouver, Seattle, and Los Angeles. Currently he is dedicated full time to art practice in his studio in Victoria BC.
