Michael Felmingham was born in Birmingham in 1935. He taught for many years at Leicester and Coventry Colleges of Art.
He ended his teaching years in 1989 to focus on his own painting, working in and from his studio in Leamington Spa. He painted in and around the areas near to where he lived, but Venice and Northern Italy were to become the focus for some of his favourite subjects for pictures.
Michael has had great success with many solo exhibitions and had work accepted and hung at other mixed venues including The Royal academy, The Royal Watercolour Society and The Royal Society of British Artists. He was a prize-winner at The Saunders Waterford competition in 1981. His work hangs in many public sand private collections, including British Gas, Texaco, The bank of England and British American Tobacco.
This snow-covered Warwick street scene was one of his earliest pictures, being dated 1989 in pencil to the reverse. Be sure to wear plenty of warm clothes when viewing!
