Michael Cartwright (1955-.) Australia

Biographical Information

Michael Cartwright immigrated to Australia from England with his family in 1966 aged 11.

Michael was greatly influenced by his father, Arthur Cartwright, a great mentor and inspirational factor in his career. Michael and his father painted together for many years.

He was inspired by painters of the Heidelberg School, particularly Tom Roberts, Frederick McCubbin and Arthur Streeton, and prefers to paint outdoors as did these artists, and considers this ''plein air'' method an essential part of the learning process.

He has been painting professionally for 25 years and has won numerous awards.

Michael discovered the scenic town of Denmark on Western Australia's south coast and moved there with his family in 1983. So taken with the area, he and his family have lived there ever since.

He paints a wide range of subjects, but specialises in landscapes, both traditional and whimsical, with a strong representation of local historical themes based around the south coast scenery of Western Australia. Edit or add to this biography
