Michael Roberts is a painter and printmaker living and working between London and Provence. He gained a BA at Trent Polytechnic and finished his studies in the Printmaking Department at the RCA. 

"My primary concerns are with narrative, surface, repetition, layering and colour. Often the beginning of work is gleaned from observed situations, books read, mundane encounters, the jetsam and flotsam of everyday life or chance. Once embedded a process of evaluation begins, weighing up and worrying, formulating a working narrative until the inception."
