Michael Toole is a long time resident of Mississauga, Ontario and 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, on dibond, on acrylic and on paper behind glass.
Michael has received several awards for his work and is well represented by galleries in Toronto, Ottawa, and Muskoka. He has shown his work in New York City and will be showing in Miami this year. His work is held in numerous private and corporate collections all over North America.
