Michael and his young family made their home in Jindabyne and life and the future was looking bright but everything changed in August 2005 when Michaels wife and 2 young daughters were involved in a tragic car accident that claimed the life of 21 month old Marley. In an effort to simplify life and to come to grips with the immeasurable loss of Marley, Michael decided to close the Bungendore gallery. As you might imagine, Marley's death has changed Michael's life in many ways. In a positive sense, it has made him even more aware of just how fragile and beautiful life and the world around us is and has reminded him to appreciate every moment and every detail, every day.
Michael passion for adventure has taken him to many amazing places, not only has he explored many of the hidden delights of the Kosciuszko National Park, but has ventured to Antarctica, America, Canada, Argentina, another trip to Africa, Diving in the Coral Sea and is currently planning to snorkel with Humpback whales in Tonga.
Due to the world financial crisis, Michael has decided to close the gallery in Jindabyne, and hopes to reopen a new gallery within the near future. Michael now is developing his online gallery and with more freedom is also venturing far afield again and creating even more inspirational imagery.
