 Michael Raho

In his early years Michael trained as an illustrator, accepting a junior post with a London publisher.
After a while, being a great admirer of the French Impressionists, he decided to move away from the discipline of illustrating, and enjoy his love of Art as a hobby.

Entering industry, Michael found sufficient time to improve his knowledge and technique with Oil & Acrylic paints.
His framed paintings sold well at exhibitions in Yorkshire and North Wales, some being taken overseas: Canada, USA, Germany, Austria & Australia.

After retiring to Northumberland, in addition to teaching Beginners Watercolours close to home, Michael enjoys painting local landscapes.
