Michael Linsey was born in Harrow and educated locally. He passed the
entrance exam for Harrow School of Art at the age of thirteen. The next
three years were spent studying drawing and illustration plus taking the
commercial art course, this enabling him to get his first job at sixteen with
a London Advertising Agency.
He later travelled through Europe, Russia, the
Middle East and India, eventually arriving in Melbourne, Australia where he
worked in the advertising department of the famous Myers Emporium.
Now a full-time painter, his paintings cover a wide range of subjects including
landscapes, seascapes and interiors.
