Michael Forbes founded his business, Silver Lining Design Studio, in 2010. Michael was born in Chilliwack, BC and grew up in Northern BC where he was immersed in Indigenous arts and culture. His roots trace back to Haida Gwaii, where is family is related to Haida Master Artist, Charles Edenshaw. Michael has been sketching and painting since he was a child. As a young boy, he visited the village of Skidegate, where he witnessed one of the last totem pole raisings of that era. He was mesmerized and inspired by the artwork he witnessed. From that day on, he has dedicated his life to being a practicing artist. Michael is best known for his glassware and his paintings. His artwork is featured in many galleries throughout BC, as well as in the traditional longhouses in the Fraser Valley.
