About Mike Jackson:-
 
Mike was born in 1962 to a working class Manchester family, Mike grew up in a warm family surrounded with honest values.  Mike left school with few qualifications but with a great love of art. However, he was encouraged to learn a trade so 'he would always have something to fall back on'.
 
Mike became a Butcher. After a wide and varied career path he eventually pursued the artistic path and became a Graphic Designer.  Mike says he bought the various computer packages along with an Apple Mac and taught him self. He was lucky enough to gain access into the Commercial Art world and he stayed there, learning from mistakes and increasing in knowledge and experience for about 12 years.
 
Meantime he was developing his illustration skills and learning different Medias until he felt he was good enough to sell some of his paintings. For years after that he concentrated on perfecting his watercolour skills and felt that this was the path for him.
 
Mike was quite a successful watercolour artist for many years and was pushed by a friend who has a gallery in Somerset to try out acrylics. Mike had a go and to his surprise he absolutely loved them.  Mike has  no formal training in art so he has had to learn by his mistakes, yet Mike would have it no other way as he feels that this is the best way of developing his own technique.
 
Mike is married with two fabulous children and one grandson, who all keep his feet on the ground. Mike moved to Somerset in 1999 which has helped his artistic inspiration, as the colours and the local sounds of the country really help to free up his mind.
