Michael Donnelly believes in investigating universal truths through the known and particular. He celebrates the seemingly mundane as he finds it, firstly in his adopted city of Melbourne, and then further afield.

Michael Donnelly has held numerous solo exhibitions since 1984 and participated in many group exhibitions throughout Australia and the USA. His works are included in collections around Australia.

His most recent exhibition was at the WellSpring Centre for Contemplative Spirituality, Ashburton, Vic, in October, 2017.
