About

Michael Augustine ~ Description

Hi welcome to my website and here is is about me
When I was younger I obtained a Diploma in Commercial Art and with this I run my own business as a Commercial Artist in Margaret River Western Australian . Leaving this behind and moving to the Sunshine Coast Queensland the focus is only fine art with the emphasis on traditional values in art . I always look to design a fantastic composition where the viewers eye journeys to and around the focal point so the shapes and tonal values come into play with light and shadows and be alert to the colour relationships between the objects and edges . My passion remains constant, the experiences are often challenging, moving and uplifting .
If interested I can give a painting price on erquest .
