Mark Brierley is a Windermere based artist. He spent his school years at Bury Grammar school, where all his energy went into his art classes. After leaving school he went on to study art, followed by 10 years working in the family wallpaper and fabric business, where he acquired skills with clients and their interior design aspirations.
After having sold his paintings for many years in galleries across the country, his move to The Lake District has been a huge inspiration to the development of his work. He finds living in a such beautiful area with such variety local landscapes and ever changing weather conditions and skies a constant observation process.
His studio is based at his Windermere home where he lives with his wife Emma, daughter Ava and their dogs. In his spare time he loves to get out on the Lake, where the surrounding elements feel so much more connected.
