Born, brought up and living in The High Weald for most of his life, Mark uses not only the natural materials he was surrounded with as his tools, materials and inspiration, but also the stunning Sussex landscape which is reflected in his work.

From a third generation of artists and artisans, Mark uses his 25 years’ experience in the construction industry to develop his art works, which include reclaimed wood sculptures, photographs, drawings and paintings. Predominantly self-taught, Mark has developed his skills through engaging in art classes and collaboration with other local artists.

Mark’s artistic viewpoint is to capture unique moments in nature, forever in wood, photographs and paintings, and hopes to make the transition from corporate life to full time professional artist by the age of 50.
