Mark was born in North Yorkshire in 1964 and he studied at St Johns in York where he graduated in 1988 with a BA Honors degree in Fine Art and Media Studies, specializing in oil painting. He has since been widely exhibited in the UK and has many international sales. Mark currently lives and works from his studio in rural Perthshire, Scotland.
Living in the Highlands since 2004 has given him the opportunity to fully explore the outstanding and breathtaking landscape that Scotland has to offer. His paintings reflect the ever changing mood of remote locations, dramatic skies and vast beaches , as well as the colourful mountain flora and geography.
Approaching the work with a bold palette, an impressionistic style and semi-abstract representation, and by incorporating mixed media and found materials from the local areas depicted, Mark achieves a sense of authenticity and belonging, allowing the viewer to breath and immerse in the landscape.
Since the 1st of December 2022 Mark and his wife Sally have been the joint owners of Zenwalls Gallery, Peebles . It is their ambition to promote not only Scottish based artists but to introduce crafters based in Scotland and feature their handmade gifts.
