Born 1956. Mark went to Cambridge School of Art from 1973-4 then Canterbury College of Art from 1974-77, studying Graphic Design. Apprenticed for four years to artist Tom Taylor, subsequently working as a model-maker.
In recent years, his work has become more surreal, often featuring outsize objects within a landscape. He paints in oil, and his work is witty, colourful and very original.
He also works for television and film, designing and making props, having worked on recent productions of Hard Times, The Borrowers and Gormenghast.
