Mark was born in the Potteries, North Staffordshire. His family worked in the Pottery Industry for five generations. Self-taught, he has been painting professionally since 1994.
“Stoke-on-Trent has always been a place of artistry, to continue that tradition is a privilege. I think the techniques of all those pottery painters must influence a style.”
A member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists and the Wirral Society of Arts, Mark regularly exhibits nationally and won first prize in the Sunday Times Watercolour Competition 2012.
