Mark's paintings are inspired by the idiosyncrasies of the northern English and Scottish countryside. Born in Australia, he feels that he brings to his work the fresh perspective of someone who originates from a very different environment.
Mark works primarily in oil on canvas or on wood and enjoys exploring textures, colour and the intrinsic geometry of the natural world. His use of colour is bold and direct, challenging the viewer to consider familiar landscapes in a very different way. Mark's paintings also explore figurative themes, applying the same approach as he does to his landscape pieces.
