Mark Munroe Preston

 

Mark was born in Yorkshire. He studied photography at Wolverhampton Poly before

moving to London in 1991, where he worked as a photographer. Since then Mark has

worked as a digital illustrator for book publishers & magazines, a digital retoucher for several national newspapers, a children’s illustrator working in 3D and most recently as the Creative Director for an American toy company.

 

Mark moved to Sussex in 2001 and it was there that he began to explore the local

countryside, and particularly the Ashdown Forest, with his dogs and his camera. It is

from this ever-expanding collection of images that he draws inspiration for his work.

These photographs are digitally merged with other photographs, paintings, drawings,

textures, and found objects to create the final artwork. Some of the pieces are more

literal interpretations of the places he has photographed, while others are more

conceptual or graphic in their approach, but all seek to evoke the beauty, drama, and

atmosphere of the landscapes around him.

 

The names of the pieces often designates the GPS location where the original

photograph was taken and can be visited or found on Google Maps.

Artworks are available as Giclee Fine Art prints in various sizes and as Brushed

Aluminium Di-Bond Prints.
