Instagram post 2031419744631917883_6711849572 I found this newspaper photo from 1993. I was 26 and had just started my own business...Strictly Visual. I’m working on the sign here and wearing a t-shirt I designed for Howlin’ Hound. My garage was my studio back then. My painting career had also just started. I lost my dad that January (you can see his Harley in the background), and painting was helping me heal.... I didn’t know it at the time. In fact I was quite shocked that there was interest in my paintings at all, they weren’t created for that. Looking back over the years I’ve certainly learned a lot and continue to learn daily. I’ve worked with some amazing people on some awesome projects. My time is split now between design and art. If you’d like to see my art you can check out @michaelbarber_art

Instagram post 2003234118355246455_6711849572 It’s not everyday that you get to exhibit your work alongside family and friends, but that’s what’s happening. We are taking Port Dover artists and having an exhibition at the Station Arts Centre in Tillsonburg Ontario. I hope you can join us for the opening reception. Everyone is busy making new work. I’m looking forward to seeing how our work looks together in one space.
