Michael A. Richecoeur was born in Jersey in 1946 where he still lives and works. Michael was elected to the Printmakers Council of Great Britain when he was still in his early twenties.
Following graduation from Portsmouth College of Art in 1965, Michael was admitted to the world renowned Slade and Royal College of Art, where at the latter, he received a Master's Degree in 1971.
A Fellowship at Yale University in 1970 completed Michael`s academic training and provided enriching experience in the medium of his speciality colour etching.
Michael`s impeccable intaglio technique and the gentle, oriental mood of his landscape subjects have met with considerable praise from collectors who provide an enthusiastic audience for his new etchings.
