Mark is an artist, designer and photographer, graduating from Edinburgh College of Art.
As a designer, painter and newspaper art director - his abstract style is mature as well as diverse
His intrigue with abstract painting came even before college, and since that time he has been discovering and rediscovering its unique properties
and flexibility. This becomes truly evident in his abstract painting followed by the unique style of mixed media he has continually developed.
The textural and translucent properties of mixed mediums make a unique painting style.
Mark's paintings are are very textural based with contrasting colours set on expanses of blacks and whites, and overpainted again and again with colour, layer after layer to build up a deep, rich ground to work upon. The relief is built up with different techniques; layers of glues and mediums, acrylic and enamel; paper, canvas and card, sand, glass... and anything that inspires Mark. Using drawings and camera to capture images, moods and textures as well as found objects. Many of his works are expressionistic and spontaneous which gives a epecial quality.
