Mark’s work stems from a fascination with ancient cultures, mythology and nature. It is all underpinned with his technical understanding of the human form which he has acquired during his time as a sculptor.

Drawing from these themes, Mark has explored and developed ideas to produce work that has symbolic elements coupled with a strong sensitive aesthetic.

“Bronze is my preferred media, It encompasses thousands of years of history and is a technique that has changed little to this day.
It gives a tactile quality that compliments my work and also, because of the nature of the material, lends to an aura of permanence which satisfies the soul”
