ARTIST: Michael D'abbs
Michael D'Abbs excelled in art at school and was asked to join a leading commercial art studio. He declined this opportunity in order to pursue a seagoing career becoming a master mariner as well as a qualified pilot. He has continued painting throughout his life, specialising primarily in marine and aviation subjects, for which he has completed many commissions which are held in private collections in the UK and Australia. Now retired, he continues painting mainly land and seascapes and has been represented by the Manyung Gallery in Melbourne.
