Exhibit 'A' Gallery
at The Old Courthouse
Mark is a watercolour painter and sculptor and works out of Brougham Hall , Eamont Bridge.
He trained in Art at Carlisle College but is largely self taught.
His technique for watercolour painting is to use a wet in wet style, but aspires to give the pictures some power and atmosphere. The pictures tend to be mainly but not exclusively landscape.
He paints hundreds of pictures a year and often sell them as small original cards.
In ceramics, although he enjoys throwing on the wheel, he has been taught by Annie Peaker of Lazonby and greatly influenced by Simon Griffiths the wildlife Sculptor . His aim is to give the subject a feeling of movement.
