Michael Stockdale

 Michael was born in Paris, France, of British and French ancestry and spent his early youth on the Left Bank, a stone's throw from the Theatre de l'Odeon and the Saint-Germain-des-pres church.Michael studied art in France and at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels, Belgium.

After working in Europe in film animation, publishing, and illustration, he moved to Montreal to work in advertising, opening his own commercial art studio in 1984.

He started to paint in the early nineties, first in watercolours, then in acrylics and oils. By the middle of the decade, painting became his full-time occupation. Michael moved to Vancouver in 1996 and presently exhibits in various galleries in Vancouver, the lower mainland, the Okanogan, Vancouver Island and Cozumel, Mexico.

His work figures in private and corporate collections in Europe, Canada, the U.S., Mexico, Hong Kong, and Japan.

Michael's paintings are a celebration of life. There is a storytelling quality of his work. A very personal vision of his surroundings as well as primary importance given to colour and composition produces dreamlike, whimsical scenes that engage the viewer's imagination.
