Mark Hearld

October 10, 2010

Since his childhood days, Mark Hearld has had a love for nature and animals.

He trained in Illustration at Glasgow School of Art and followed that up with

an M.A. in Natural History Illustration at the Royal College of Art.

He is now a York based, multi media artist who happily creates oil and watercolours,collages, textiles,

3D pieces, ceramics, posters, book covers, lithographs and linocuts.

All in a wonderfully loose, yet colourfully informative style.

A fellow illustration artist, who is also influenced by the likes of Edward Bawden and

Eric Ravilious, John Piper and Paul Nash is definitely going to be a favourite of mine.

Thanks to World of Interiors Magazine and ALH1 on flickr for the photos of Marks’ eclectic

and beautiful home … couldn’t you just draw in there happily all day long !

You can find more of Marks’ prints and fabrics on the St Judes website.

      Hi Karen I’m only writing about Mark’s work on my blog. I don’t have ways of contacting him I’m sorry. Great that you also like his work, perhaps the YSP can forward an email for you ? Good luck. Craig
