Michael Praed

As one of Cornwall’s most recognised artists, Michael Praed is known for his paintings of coves, cliffs, harbours and boats of the county and surrounding area. His work has been extensively exhibited around the UK and reflects his deep affection for Cornwall and its heritage.

Michael’s work can be recognised by its characteristic subject matter, colours and structure. The use of contrasts is a reoccurring theme, which is a theme he considers to be central to his work. He often uses warm colours next to cold tones along with sharp lines of harbour masts next to rounded coves and boat hulls. His most consistent theme is that of the Cornish landscape.
