" I commissioned the painting ‘My Campsies’ for my mum's 80th Birthday. I wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted so Mark helped me through the process. He sent me away to think about the particular view that was in my mind and he also spent time capturing images of the Campsies. We eventually got the location and I just trusted Mark to get to work. I didn’t know him, just knew I was able to trust him from the pictures on his various sites.
When I arrived and finally met him and was shown ‘My Campsies’ I was delighted. I had asked for warm pinks/purples and the final painting was exactly what I hoped for.
I would definitely recommend Mark and would ask for his help again. He seems warm and passionate about his work and I found that really great. His paintings all seem to be alive. Every time we look at 'My Campsies' there is something new to see. We love it!!!
Thanks Mark. A unique 80th birthday present which my mum was overwhelmed with."

"Mark, I cannot thank you enough! ‘Inveraray’ is my favorite place in Scotland and I now have a beautiful piece of art that I can look at to remind me of it! Your work is impeccable and the detail is absolutely amazing. You not only captured my favorite place but the feeling I have when there! I was overwhelmed when I first viewed it in person. Tremendous task for you and you nailed it! Bravo!!!"

"Purchased a beautiful picture of the Campsies, and so pleased with it. We wanted a picture of somewhere we knew, and the colours are just beautiful. Mark did the frame too and it sets the picture off perfectly. Def recommend Mark's paintings he is very talented and my picture has finished off the room perfectly. I couldn’t be happier!"

"Mark did a commission for me for my Dad’s 70th birthday, a beautiful painting of my late Grandfather. We are blown away by it and feel so proud that we have this unique painting now in the family forevermore. Mark was interested in my Grandad and asked questions about him, making the whole experience really enjoyable and personal. Mark is unbelievably gifted and I cannot wait to have something else painted by him!!"
-Tina Forrest, Milton of Campsie, Scotland
"We commissioned Mark to paint a wintry scene of cottages in Leadhills where my Mum originally came from, it is a very dear place to me. Mark brought the painting to us yesterday, we are delighted with it, it is beyond my expectations. I would definitely recommend him."

"I worked with Mark this summer to provide a visual arts programme for children of NHS keyworkers. Mark is incredibly organised. The 2 and 3 dimensional activities he designed were smart, accessible and fun. His teaching manner is professional, friendly and down to earth, the children and staff really engaged with him. The children developed good creative and artistic skills. At times Mark had to respond to change and challenging circumstances, he adapted his delivery and workshop content well ensuring everyone had the same quality of experience. I'd highly recommend this tutor for work with children and adults."
- Esmee Thompson-Smith, Heritage & Arts Team Leader, East Dunbartonshire Council, Scotland
"Mark is an extremely professional, charismatic and talented artist. His accomplished technical ability is matched with enthusiastic teaching skills. His friendly, natural, calm and engaging manner is ideal for supporting art students of any level. His systematic view and meticulous attention to detail help student to acquire solid background knowledge and built confidence rapidly. He is also very approachable and easy to communicate with, at all times. I could not recommend him more for anyone who wants a supportive, encouraging and effective drawing tutor."
