Mark Rochester has always sketched and painted, but in recent years, his return to his native North Devon has rekindled his interest in working from nature which has fuelled his passion for working 'en Plein air' in some of Devon's most breathtaking scenery.
Mark says: "I am privileged to live right on the North Devon coast, with stunning views of the sea directly from my home and studio. Whenever I can, and other commissioned design work allows, I try to get out there and really experience what I am painting at first-hand. My work consequently has freshness and immediacy that I hope will be compelling."
