Mark worked in pastel to create primarily landscapes of some of Europe’s loveliest locations—Venice, Provence, Paris and his own English countryside. He favored a vibrant palette and expressive style (as seen in Roquebrune III, at left) and won many honors. Most recently, he was awarded this year’s Orange Street Gallery prize at the 109th exhibition of the Pastel Society UK, an organization in which Mark was very active, serving as both treasurer and president-elect.
