Michael O'Toole, S.F.C.A. (1963 – 2018) was a native of British Columbia. He studied architectural design at a technical institute, then worked with firms in that field. In 1991, he won a prize for “Best Home Design.” Later, painting became Michael’s all-consuming passion. As an artist he painted mainly impressionistic acrylics with landscape, seascape and architecture as his chief subjects.
