Mark Brierley, is an artist living in the Lake District.

He finds his inspiration for his mixed media paintings, both in his abstract and floral contemporary work, from interior fashion.

The importance of colour is vital in making it easier for people to find something for their home environment. This is even more accessible through commissioned work.

Mark was born in Rochdale and at Bury Grammar School, excelled in art - the only class in which he didn't want the bell to ring. From there he went on to study Art & Design, specialising in textiles, to link in with the family wallpaper and fabric company. Several years of working in the business has given him a good insight into what people desire and appreciate in their homes.

You can see my work at La Galerie D'art at Bowness on Windermere and Ambleside, Gallery H at Arnside and The Unicorn Gallery at Wilmslow.
