Northamptonshire based artist Mark Duffin was born in and grew up in Berkshire, where he studied graphic design and illustration. He had always had a love of landscape, something he would draw on for inspiration in his painting.
After graduating he began a career as a freelance illustrator working for design consultancies, advertising agencies and publishing companies in the UK and overseas.
Initially, Mark worked with traditional media, mainly airbrush & acrylic due to the tight deadlines but in 1996 ,with the onset of computers he changed to the digital media for his commercial work while still painting for private work in oils .
The paintings he produces today, try to convey a sense of calmness and quiet with his subtle use of colour and keen eye for detail, aiming to create the feeling of an old photo that vaguely recalls memories of a distant time and place all inspired by the English landscape. Many images draw on mythical creatures such as dragons, others include hares and stags, most include trees.
We have a range of Mark's hand embellished giclee prints and greetings cards in the gallery.
