Michael runs Void Gallery, an artist-run centre focused on supporting local artists and the local arts community. They host Saskatoon’s only publicly-accessible printmaking studio, hold free drop-in art nights, and provide workshops in printmaking and other art methods. Michael is currently the Artist in Residence at Aden Bowman Collegiate, developing and offering printmaking education there; he filled a similar role at Centennial Collegiate last year. Michael received his BFA in Printmaking from the University of Saskatchewan in 2009 and his MDes (Master of Design) from Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver in 2015. His thesis explored local food systems and food security with an emphasis on ways that community connections can be built through food.
