Mark Rochester trained at Central School of Art and worked for over 30 years as a leading textile designer. His work is used for home furnishing and wallpapers by quality UK and US-based companies such as Colefax & Fowler, GP & J Baker, Brunschwig & Fils (New York), Osborne & Little and Sanderson.

Mark has always sketched and painted, but in recent years, his return to his native North Devon has rekindled his interest in working from nature which has fuelled his passion for working 'en plain air' in some of Devon's most breathtaking scenery.

"'I continue to paint outdoors responding to my environment . Wherever it leads me, from the back garden to the moor and on to the vertiginous cliff side'
