Welcome to my wonderland of words and pictures. I am, as you might have surmised, Michael Birchmore.
Having spent the best part of 40 years in various aspects of business and industry I have decided to concentrate on a big love of my life, words and pictures.
I love creating things, especially pictures and stories. The buzz of completing a piece is as evocative now as it was when I was a teenager. As a writer I see myself as a portal to an infinite number of worlds and realities.
Now, though, I am able to do it commercially and there is no better thing than really enjoying what others call work. As I am sure you are aware, words and pictures make up a vital part of commercial communication.
To describe what I do, and can do for you, I will split into two sections. Conveniently we’ll call these sections words and pictures.
I offer a proofreading and copy editing service. So many times have I seen very expensive presentations and promotions fall flat on their face because of a simple spelling or grammatical error. As you will see in my pricing section, this isn’t an expensive service to use but one that could be very costly to ignore if you get something wrong. The difference can be as much as between “let’s eat grandma” and “let’s eat, grandma”. I can proofread leaflets, websites, conference papers, dissertations, blogs, articles and promotional material.
I am able to create images in a variety of styles as you will see from my images on here. I can also create images that can be used as wall art. This can add to the atmosphere of your working environment and boost the emotiveness behind a sales drive. Many artists use digital technology to create their images. I like to use that and the good old paper and paint or pen and ink methods depending on the look I am trying to achieve.
