Mark is an artist and art tutor based in Shropshire, UK.


Sketching is at the heart of my work. This is integral to the development of a piece, many times forming part of the painting itself.


I continue to draw inspiration from the landscape, although subject matter and application at times can be very different.

I adore using colour while interpreting the light, weather conditions and a love for 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 then worked back in the studio"

What people say....


''I always promised myself, one day I would have a painting holiday.
What a wonderful experience it was too. A group of strangers became a group of friends. Mark guided us through our week with support, encouragement and enthusiasm. I can honestly say that I had a really amazing time. Thank you Mark for your time and organisation of such a splendid occasion. You’ve inspired me to keep up my painting and taught me to be more observant , improved my colour mixing and loosen up!  JP Aug 2018


'Just got back home after a beautiful week of painting with Mark and a lovely group of people!.

 This is my second painting holiday with Mark and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Mark has the ability and professionalism to make you feel at ease and as a beginner to the world of painting this approach is very encouraging. Tuition was delivered in group and also one to one which helped me a lot. Mark's tuition is brilliant for all levels of ability and it was wonderful to see the lovely artwork produced by the more experienced painter.  The holiday was extremely well organised and Mark did everything   possible to make this a lovely experience for all.
Thank you Mark, can't wait for the next one!!.' LL Aug 2018
