Michael Praed was born in Cornwall in 1941 and studied at the Penzance and Falmouth Schools of Art. He went on to teach art in Penzance for nearly thirty years before working full-time on his own paintings.

Praed lives in the fishing port of Newlyn and his studio has views over the harbour and across the bay to St Michael's Mount. His paintings of the Cornish coastline, sea and cliffs have a distinctive personal style. The strong, near vertical lines and rust coloured formations that often pervade the coastal views evoke the granite cliffs and harbours of West Cornwall.
