Hello! I'm Mark B and I like to painting little worlds inspired by nature, folk stories and whimsy. My loves in life include tea, the BBC World Service, Tove Jansson, baking, Oliver Postgate, the colour green, David Attenborough documentaries, cloudless skies and silent movies. I also have a near superhuman capacity for eating cherry bakewells. I live in a small village with my girlfriend, Sarah, who makes jewellery (www.pennymasquerade.com) & a small puppy named Totoro.
