mark has used a camera since the
age of 18. he first developed and
printed many black and white films,
then digital arrived and the
possibilities seems endless.
during this time mark graduated
in 1991, with a first class degree
in fine art textiles, made
furniture, designed, art edited
art directed many leading monthly
magazines at ipc.
mark then chose a career where
whatever he created, he created
alone. when his paintings resonate
they do so deeply, choosing to use
self refurbished, used frames,
mark brings two disparate pieces
(the frame and the painting)
together and makes a whole.
“mark paints layers of graphic
architectural detail on hardboard
to create ‘muted urbanscapes’ which
reference a mixture of photography,
memory and imagination”
