Name: Mark Whittaker
Bio: Mark Whittaker is a pastel landscape artist specialising in painting traditional scenes of the landscape and coast of Britain. Mark is an entirely self taught artist born and brought up in Newport, Gwent, South Wales. After a career in the civil service, Mark decided to paint full-time in 2006.
The picturesque fishing harbours of St.Ives and Polperro in Cornwall have been a major source of inspiration for many of his paintings; he is also familiar with the coast of Pembrokeshire, the mountains of the Brecon Beacons and rural Herefordshire.
Mark has exhibited his work throughout South and West Wales and his paintings are to be found in private collections in the United Kingdom and abroad. He is a member of the Pastel Guild of Europe. His work was featured in International Artist Issue no 89, Feb/March 2013.
