WORK WITH

Mark Thompson

Michaela Hoppe
   

OIL | Watercolor | Charcoal

Born in the Fenlands of Eastern England (1972), Mark went on to study painting at the Slade School of Fine Art in London.

His early memories of the land informed his studies, and he continues to explore the inextricable link between landscape and memory in his current body of work.

After completing his degree in 1997, he won first the Duveen and then the Rootstein Hopkins travel scholarships, which took him to Iceland, Norway and Finland.

Mark’s experiences in these harsh Nordic landscapes inspired his first solo exhibition at the Proud Galleries in London (1999).
