Born in Woking, Surrey in 1961, Mark studied at Birmingham School of Art and Design achieving BA (Hons) and a Masters Degree in Illustration.
Living and working in South London, the inspiration for Mark’s paintings is often in the everyday life he finds around him – the parks and streets of West Norwood, Herne Hill, Dulwich and beyond.
The effects of changing light and seasons, plus the connection between man-made and the natural, are constant themes in his work. Mark is based at Clockwork Studio, Camberwell – a vibrant and established community of artists – for some 20 years.
Mark exhibits widely and has work in private collections in the UK, Europe, Australia and in the USA.
He also exhibits regularly in a variety of society shows including:
The Royal Society of British Artists, The Royal Institute of Oil Painters and The Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour. He has also exhibited at The Royal Academy of Arts Summer Show on several occasions.
