Michael Toole was a long time resident of the GTA who now makes his home in Gravenhurst, Ontario and is an active member within his community. He is the son of an amateur photographer (father) and a painter (mother). Given his parental influences, Michael tends to look for new and inventive ways to present his work. Whether that be combining different exposures or entirely different photographs to create a single compelling piece of art, his work continues to evolve. He is never satisfied with the act of simply recording information with the camera but is always looking at different methods of creating and presenting images so that the final products are truly unique. His images are presented on board with resin and encaustic, on dibond, on acrylic, and on paper behind glass. He has won numerous awards and continues to show his work in Galleries in Toronto, Muskoka, New York City and Ottawa.
