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, 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"
Mark has numerous works in private collections and has exhibited widely.
I am happy to take commissions.
Work can be currently found in the following galleries ......
The Gallery at No.3, Ellesmere.
