Mike Roberts is a northern artist who lives in Timperley near Manchester.
Having studied art in the 80s, Mike got disheartened with the art scene and decided to take a break. Now having more time to paint he has come back refreshed and created a style that brings flamboyance and quirkiness with a sense of nostalgia. His imaginary and sometimes realistic characters have been brought to life with his beautiful linework and exuberant colours.
Mike’s series of illustrations depicting the imaginary character called Silvia who lives a flamboyant and outgoing lifestyle as he depicts her in everyday life. Currently Mike is working on a series of Edward Lear illustrations Having just completed the Owl and Pussycat.
