Michael Weller studied librarianship in Manchester and realised early on he didn’t want to be a librarian. Life-drawing cheered him up. Later he did a degree in Fine Art and studied portrait-painting at Lavender Hill Studios and drawing and painting with the New English Art Club. In 2015 he won the Le Clerc Fowle Medal for a group of outstanding paintings at the Royal Institute of Oil Painters’ annual exhibition, and the Winsor & Newton Award for a painting at the New English Art Club annual exhibition.

What are students saying about Michael:

“Michael is a generous instructor who works hard to give his students as much help along their art journey as he can. I learnt so much from him and am so appreciative of his commitment to his students and the guidance he gave me.” – J.R., NSW, Australia
