Professional artist, Mark A Pearce, creates unique and vibrant original art. As a printmaker Mark offers signed handmade limited edition wood and linocuts, sometimes combining many different printmaking techniques in one image. His inspiration comes from the landscape around him. He says of his work:
'It’s all about noticing things. The better you are at noticing the better you will be at making engaging pictures. I spend most of my time noticing the world around me here on the coast in Ravenglass, where the mountains almost reach the shore and three rivers join to form a perfect estuary. Making pictures is an attempt to share the excitement of a light effect, composition or colour combination.
I enjoy the discipline of multi colour prints. The process forces me to think precisely about the nature of what I see and how to put it across. There’s an awful lot of noticing distilled into a colour print.
At the end of the day, to quote Henry Moore, Art should help everyone to enjoy and appreciate the world.'
