After gaining a BA(Hons) in Graphic Design in 1979, Mark worked in Design Studios and Advertising Agencies in Cardiff, before setting up his own Design company in 1989.

Alongside his graphic design career, Mark started painting/illustrating in 2007. He has also worked as a celebrity photographer; a guitarist in several South Wales' based rock bands; as a film extra (including 'Inspector Morse' - photos from the filming of this are in the Photograph Gallery); and has had short stories published and broadcast on BBC local radio.
He has also worked in a voluntary capacity as an Art Therapist for a psychiatric hospital and the charity 'Scope', working with people who have cerebral palsy.

Having spent many years travelling the world with a camera and sketchbook, Mark now divides his time between his home in Cyncoed, Cardiff and the rugged wilds of rural west Wales.
