Mike Hindle studied Fine Art at the West Surrey College of Art and Design in Farnham, Hampshire. Mike moved to Cornwall in ’92 where he worked full time as a painter and exhibited his work regularly. Living here, Mike obtains his inspiration from his daily interaction with the sea and Cornish landscape. He conveys the feeling of a place more than just its detail and the evident relationship between the artist and the subject matter is embedded in every piece.
Mike said, “These works come from years of living and working in South Cornwall. I’m inspired by the coast and my paintings, like many artists, are inspired by the landscape and have evolved over time. Shapes that had been lost were found, and colours worked and reworked over and over again. The end result was unnoticeable at the outset, but arrived at through the work in progress, forming itself as I paint.”
