From the time Mark left his Design Group in 1991 he began to find time to explore painting and artwork beyond the realms of Graphics ...... Advertising, Print and Exhibition Stand Design. Teaching Art in secondary schools fuelled this exploration as he worked with students who were using Art as their way of expressing their own feelings and ideas. Teaching Art gave him a freedom to help others achieve their goals.
Studio work in the 'studio days' he felt was his destiny; producing design solutions to clients' problems in a visual way was the perfect career. However, time to be creative was limited as his role become more administrative.
Hence the move into education.
All paintings on this page were carried out in oils, with the exception of the 'Tangent' series, 'Coelacanth' and 'Badbury Rings' which were in oil paint and collage.
