Whilst enjoying a successful career in Logistics, Mark renewed his passion for art. Originally a watercolourist, Mark’s most recent discovery of oil now provides the perfect medium to capture the mood and atmosphere of sea, land and city subjects.
He likes to pursue subjects that evoke atmosphere, light and accommodate a ‘soft edge’. Mark is a Sheffield based artist painting the city itself, reflecting many childhood memories of the weather and busy people. Further inspiration is drawn from the neighbouring rugged landscape and changing skies of the Peak District. His great escape, the Isles of Scilly, reflects the white sands, blue seas and sheer tranquility of the beautiful Isles, images of which are produced following endless hours of watching rather than study.
