Michael (Mick) Leetham-Cooper

Biography

Returning to oil painting after a career in art education and art software development, I have become fascinated by the ubiquity of photographs and the 'reality' they present - particularly those fleeting, casual and disposable images which, nevertheless, offer something deeper. Such photos are my starting point and I use various approaches: digital image editing, montage and direct observation from life, to interpret and/or re-invent the image and produce a finished painting in oils. I mostly work on a commission basis, but giclee printed reproductions of my work on archive-quality paper are available. Contact me for details.
