Born in England, Mark grew up in South Australia where he obtained his Bachelor of Product Design at Adelaide University. With his design background, his uniquely distinctive personalized style and the use of intense solid colors he brings to life the special majesty of the Canadian Rocky Mountains and The Columbia Valley, set in their own unique and spectacular surroundings.

With his World Cup coaching background with the Canadian Olympic Alpine Ski team, as well as being an artist, Mark spent most of each year in some of the world’s most spectacular and scenic Alpine regions.


But nowhere inspires Mark’s painting as much as the Canadian Rocky Mountains and Columbia Valley with their endless majestic grandeur, where he has lived with his wife and family since 1989. His most recent works can be viewed and purchased from the “About Canada Gallery” in Banff Alberta, Effusion Gallery in Invermere BC or at his Invermere studio the “Alpine Gallery”.
