Mark Hearld was born in York in 1974, where he continues to live and work. Hearld studied illustration at Glasgow School of Art followed by an MA in Natural History Illustration at the Royal College of Art.
Animals and plants have remained a constant source of inspiration to him, and are his most popular subjects. He has been greatly influenced by Picasso's style of spontaneous drawing; increasingly though it is the Englishness of Edward Bawden, Eric Ravilious and John Piper which has absorbed his attention, above all in his lithography and linocuts. He also produces unique paintings, collages and hand-painted ceramics.
