About The Tutor

Michael Weller

Michael grew up in Winchester. He studied librarianship and realised early on he didn't want to be a librarian. Going to life-drawing classes cheered him up. He became a features subtitler for the deaf and hard-of-hearing, a lucky escape. Later, Michael took a second degree in Fine Art printmaking at London Metropolitan University and achieved a First. Then he attended Lavender Hill Studios – a traditional atelier-style painting school, the first of its kind in the UK. He came back to Winchester and moved to Brassey Road Studio. He was a New English Art Club drawing scholar for 2014. In 2015 Michael won both the Winsor & Newton Award and the Le Clerc Fowle Medal for outstanding group of paintings.
Michael draws and paints in a traditional style, from life. He paints landscapes in oil outside in the open air. His still-life oil paintings are done in daylight in the studio. He usually scrapes off the paint and starts again.
