About

Michael Augustine ~ Artist Paintings

Hi welcome to my website and here is is about me
I am living on the Sunshine Coast Queensland. I started drawing at 7 years old. It gave me great joy to draw creating works of art. I then went on to do a art course and studied Commercial Art where I obtained a Diploma. With this I worked my own business as a Commercial Artist in Margaret River Western Australia for a few years while also painting. After moving to Queensland I set my sight on just painting and working in Oils and Pastels. My work comes fom what I see and feel about a place or subject that has a certain connection with the moment I see it I am visually painting it. This is where I want the communication of ideas, feelings and reactions connected with the place or subject to be painted. Evey picture tells a story.
