Art and design has interested me since an early age, so much so that art class was the one lesson at school i genuinely looked forward to every week. After school and university I had the fortune to be able continue my passion, working as a senior designer at Conde Nast Publications in London. After an exhilarating 12 years I bid farewell to my job and England, and moved a couple of thousand miles south to Spain. I now dedicate myself full time to my artistic pursuits in the tranquil and idyllic surroundings of a Mediterranean coastal village. All artwork is copyright of Michael Tompsett.
