Born in 1947 in London, England, Canadian artist, Michael Tickner, was accepted into the London School of Art in 1963, and became a member of the F.C.A. in 1992. He is known for his unique style of painting, and since 1987 his work has become part of collections in over 15 countries. He is best known for his images depicting the beautiful West Coast of British Columbia. His bold, brightly coloured images immediately evoke positive feelings showing us a world of harmony depicted with the use of colours of high energy and strength. A professional artist for over 45 years, his use of composition, colour and form, grace the walls of many serious private and corporate collections around the world.
Michael was the only artist whose work was used in the bid for the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games. The Canadian Best selling book, “Colour of British Columbia”,was written about Michael's work with 16 of Michael’s Images. In 2000 he was the subject of a Shaw Cable TV feature in his studio, as well as a guest on the Vicki Gaberau show in 2001. Michael’s original works not only appreciate in value, but are a joy to live with. His studio-produced Limited Edition archival prints are proving more popular as his sold out editions continue to increase in value. To mark the 30th anniversary of the ‘Tickner’ style
and his new studio in Nanaimo, Michael has produced his Vancouver Island Series of Studio prints featuring Shack Island, Departure to Nanaimo Harbour and Fisherman Wharf, Victoria.B.C.
