On The Ball by Michael McWilliams: Sculpture In Context 2012 at the National Botanic Gardens
Born and educated in Dublin, Michael McWilliams has been working as a professional artist for 30 years. He works from his studio on the foothills of the Dublin Mountains. While his main interest is landscape, using a palette of tones and hues inspired by nature he paints plein air, landscape and harbour scenes being his principal subject. His atmospheric landscapes and seascapes capture a personal view evoking a spirited response in the viewer. Michael also works with bronze focusing mainly on the human form.
