Mark I Willis


Artist Statement Having always lived in Ipswich
I find great inspiration from the surrounding landscape.  I have a broad range of interests and this extends from; local industrial landscapes such as the Ipswich docks area, the tranquillity of the Suffolk landscape, to more modern studies and portraits.  


Art for me is an evolving experience and
I continually enjoy discovering new ways to paint.  
I am mainly self-taught and this presents certain challenges.  I have however worked on courses run by a number of different local artists and this has always given me a fresh way to look at the world.


I sketch and photograph in the field and work up ideas in my studio.  My work is predominantly watercolour and Leonard Squirrell has always been an inspiration to me.  I enjoy working with the bold colours and texture of acrylics, and the pleasing effects that can be achieved with soft pastels.


I have exhibited in Ipswich and throughout Suffolk.
