Sean is originally from Northern England, where he spent twelve years of his life before moving to the States. He has now lived in California most of his life, between San Diego and Los Angeles. Sean’s foray into the arts was originally in theatre and film. He trained under the infamous Stella Adler and then went on to work in the industry for a steady ten years, with his most notable film role in James Cameron’s Titanic. He once toured the U.S. for 18 months through 48 cities with a Tony award winning Broadway comedy. It gave him the opportunity to spend a lot of time in America’s finest museums, with the Chicago Art Institute being his favorite. He recalls going to the museum five times during a month’s stay in Chicago, while playing the Shubert.

Sean later spent a summer in Paris and traversed the finest museums which further honed his appreciation. “The artwork by the masters had a profound effect on me. Great art is great storytelling and I discovered strong parallels to the theatre.” For the past sixteen years he has worked in the art business. Before joining Galerie Michael he worked at a gallery in Hollywood, under the helm of a top art publisher. He developed the careers of some very prominent artists. Sean later went on to form an art publishing company with his wife Meredith and placed artists in galleries throughout the U.S. and the United Kingdom. He has participated numerous times at prestigious art fairs including Art Expo NY and Art Miami. Sean particularly loves the mystery and ambiguity of the surrealists. His favorite artist is Renee Magritte.

At Galerie Michael he has chosen to specialize in the works of Salvador Dali. Sean loves to spend time traveling with his wife and five year old daughter Chloe. He practices power yoga 4-5 times a week and meditates daily. Creatively, Sean loves to write plays and screenplays. Hr keeps the inspiration flowing, by attending lots of theatre/maintaining a healthy dose TV watching.
