by Mark A. Stevens

Born in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey Mark re-located to Somerset in his early 20’s and has lived here for almost 30 years.

Having started his career studying Civil Engineering, Mark moved on to 
Mechanical Engineering where he served an apprenticeship as a Design 
Draughtsman to then finally studying Technical and Architectural illustration at Richmond-Upon-Thames College, Middlesex.

In the West Country Mark worked as a Technical illustrator for a number of years before working as a Graphic Artist on the South Devon coast. 
During these years Mark built up a large client base working as a freelance illustrator and graphic artist, finally he was in a position to launch his solo freelance career and has been working in this capacity for over 23 years.

Having always had a passion to paint and draw Mark works in pen & ink and watercolour, and developed a style of painting landscapes and seascapes that appeals directly to Mark and in a way that he particularly enjoys. He has a very keen interest in etching and has participated in a number of short courses, which he would like to pursue.
