Mark grew up in the West Midlands, England, where he eventually studied for a degree in Visual Communication at Wolverhampton University. He was always drawing from a very early age and has never forgotten what a privilege it is to be able to create for a living.
Mark’s illustrations are always initially hand drawn and then colours and textures are added digitally. His sketchbook is sacred to him. He also has a total love of retro print, especially 60’s children’s books.
“I think my work is at its best when I am able to express the childlike side of my nature. I feel it is important to still retain a sense of wonder in life (especially if you illustrate!).”
Mark lives and works in London, where he divides his time between illustration and fine art painting.
