Mark is a professional marine artist based in South West England. Born in the mid-sixties Mark has been painting maritime scenes for many years and regularly undertakes painting commissions. Mark is perhaps most well known for his large detailed paintings of J Class yachts and Americas Cup racing catamarans. Mark also produces realistic paintings of schooners and small classic yachts. Having spent his life in North Devon, Mark is influenced by the ever-changing skies and landscape of the moorland and coastline, encapsulating this beauty in his local paintings.
Mark's paintings have been featured in online publications such as Classic Boat Magazine and Yachting Monthly Magazine and have also been featured in a book, written by author Robin Whitcomb. He has donated artwork in support of The Princes Trust and the RNLI, and his paintings have been featured at various exhibitions. Most of his paintings are now in private collections in the United Kingdom and a number of his originals and prints are in small private collections in The Netherlands, Spain, the USA, Australia, and Germany.
