Michael Lyons has exhibited widely since the 60’s and gained an international reputation as a sculptor and lecturer.
When he is not working abroad, he lives and works in the village of Cawood, Yorkshire, where he has maintained a studio for over 30 years.
His work ranges from monumental works in steel, stainless steel, copper and bronze for public sites, both rural and urban, to medium and small-scale pieces for gallery and domestic settings.
He uses diverse subject matter including myth, ancient art and cultures, landscape and the forces of nature. Drawing is integral to the development of his ideas. Though abstract, his work exhibits a sense of ‘place’ and is often a response to his surroundings both in the UK and the countries to which he travels.
