Michael is a very talented artist. I have had the pleasure of purchasing sculpted pieces from him on several occasions for presentation to various business partners and suppliers. Each time, I have found a unique and appropriate piece from Michael’s collection. He has such a wide variety of pieces that I can always find something that fits the budget. His work is beautiful and a pleasure to give (and receive!)

Michael produced some excellent sculptures for the Spa on Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 for us. He proved to be not only an versatile sculptor and artist, but also very reliable in terms of meeting the design, the budget and the timeline. It is a pleasure to recommend him.

‘Tennessee Waltz’ …was designed from photos that we provided, which Michael converted to several sketches then worked with us to finalize the perfect concept. He delivered a stunning piece exactly on the agreed budget, within the agreed timeline and kept us completely informed (with progress pictures) along the way as we were living in Europe at the time. My husband and I both recommend him very highly.

Several of Michael’s stone sculptures are considered to be my and my family’s prized pieces. I commissioned one of Michael’s major pieces which was a significant investment of Michael’s creativity, time, and artistic talents. He always had more time and energy for me, and produced art of timeless beauty. For sculptures in stone, it would be unthinkable for me to go to anyone other than Michael Binkley.

We have been collecting Michael Binkley’s sculptures since 1988. We have many of his beautiful works and have enjoyed collecting over these many years. Michael is a true artist with heart, soul, and vision beyond any other artist we have known. We are art lovers and continue to enjoy Michael’s works and talents and look forward to collecting for many more years. We also have some of his sketches and garden sculptures which give our friends and neighbors much pleasure.

What spirit is so empty and blind, that it cannot recognize the fact that the foot is more noble than the shoe, and skin more beautiful than the garment with which it is clothed?
