Mark Beesley

I am a freelance artist and illustrator.

My paintings are figurative, but drawn from the imagination as much as from my surroundings.  My main interest is landscape, but it is a particular aspect of the landscape that interests me; the balance between the natural and artificial, the effect that the imposition of man-made structures has on our natural surroundings. I try to express the incongruous, sometimes disturbing quality of elements in the landscape and its underlying abstract forms.  I work in oils and watercolour, and also use pastel for working outdoors.

I exhibited in various group exhibitions in East Anglia and Somerset, and have one-man shows at the Aldeburgh Gallery, Suffolk. I have recently completed a commission for a painting about Ipswich for a new medical centre in the town.

My illustration work mostly involves architectural, historical, landscape and wildlife subjects for leaflets and information panels. I use pen, watercolour and coloured pencil. I have made a speciality of illustrative, aerial view maps.

I work for book publishers, tourism, heritage and countryside organisations and museums. Clients include Suffolk County Council, The Environment Agency, CADW-Welsh Historic Monuments, Fitzpatrick Woolmer Design, Essex County Council, Ipswich Borough Council, Ugly Studio in Norwich and the National Trust.
