After a difficult time at school (dealing with autism and severe dyslexia), and nearly 20 years working in a local plastics factory, Mark Noble set out to pursue his dream of becoming an artist. Inspired by the work of Turner, he expresses the mystical, dream-like, and sublime, through delicate attention to the commonplace or overlooked.

Now on the other side of his studies, Mark has exhibited works across the UK and Europe, most recently in Prague, and has received interest from as far afield as South America. He is currently working to establish a teaching and mentoring programme which he hopes will give him the opportunity to encourage those who, like him, have creative dreams yet to be fully realised.

His latest paintings, entitled the ‘Driftwood Collection’ have been done on recycled materials such as wood, bark, tiles and even bits of old fences in an effort to lessen the impact of the work on the environment.

Mark’s paintings are up for sale on his website!
