Art has always been a refuge and joy for Marcus from school to today. This need to create led to a masters degree in Design at Central St Martins London and a long career designing interiors for major car companies globally. He worked as a design chief at Ford Australia for 13 years and recently for Tata motors in India where he found time to take up painting.
Persuing his passion for painting figurative art, he now works from his Newstead garden studio in watercolour, Oil and acrylic. He is inspired by the local landscapes in central victoria, the garden, still life, classic motorcycles, in short, he is inspired by varied and eclectic subjects.He has recently started courses teaching watercolour locally at the Red shed Newstead.Whatever the subject either in Oil or watercolour his unique style shines through With a mix of loose painterly brushstrokes and controlled realism.
