Artist Profile

Mike Heseltine

Born in 1961, Mike is a British painter, draftsman and printmaker. His first major solo London show was in 1987 with the New Academy Gallery.

His work is held in many private and public collections as well as financial institutions worldwide including Cazenove Bank and in the collection of The Palace of Westminster, who commissioned a series of ten works entitled Where Parliament has Sat. Further commissions included the Royal Yacht Britannia.

With the purchase of a small island on the West Coast of Scotland in 2003, Mike abandoned the commercial art world and his work has now developed from representational oil paintings to simple drawings on paper exploring Buddhist and other religious teachings and symbols.

“… his work continues to impress with its increasing confidence” The Independent.
