Mark is an artist and art tutor based in Shropshire, UK.
Sketching is at the heart of his work. This is integral to the development of a piece, at times forming part of the painting itself.
"I continue to draw inspiration from the landscape, although themes and subject matter can be broad and at times very different"
"Using colour and light, a sense of the weather and a love of the materials, I work directly in the field (literally on many occasions!) from sketches created outside as well as notes and photographs taken on location"
Mark has numerous works in private collections and has exhibited widely.
I am happy to take commissions.
Work has been exhibited recently at ...
Halls Fine Art, Shrewsbury.
The Art Vaults, Shrewsbury
The Boathouse, Ellesmere.
National Art Exhibition at Ellesmere College.
The Big Art Show, Shrewsbury.
Paintings currently on sale at the Art Vaults, Shrewsbury.
