Summer Wasdale is a limited edition print by Mark Pearce.

At school I spent most of my time in the art department. I then went on to do a one year foundation course at Carlisle College of Art. It was here that I learnt the art of printmaking and then continued my studies at the Norwich School of Art doing a degree in graphic design. Keen to move to London I found my first job as a graphic designer with John Nash and Friends and my second with Michael Peters and Partners. I went on to win a D&AD (Design and Art Directors Club of Great Britain) silver award for the very first greeting stamps issued by the Royal Mail. These featured smiles from the likes of Dennis the Menace and the Cheshire Cat. I also won a BBC design award which included a number of appearances on TV. In the 90’s I set up the design consultancy Springpoint with my business partner Fiona Gilmore. There were eventually more than 30 of us in offices around the world and as design director I created and worked on brands including Vodafone, the BBC, Martel, Birds Eye, the Hong Kong Government and Unilever. After the sale of Springpoint I tried my hand at a nightclub. This was based in the famous Raymond Review bar  but this proved too much of a challenge and ended in financial disaster so I returned to Cumbria.

Mark A Pearce handprinted linocuts available to buy online and in our art gallery. Mark Pearce grew up in Cumbria where he trained at Carlisle College of Art. Mark Pearce then studied at The Norwich School of Art and after a successful career as a graphic designer in London, Mark moved back to Cumbria in 2006. He works from his Ravenglass home, creating vibrant images using a variety of media: Painting with watercolour, gouache, pastels and oils, and as a printmaker his techniques include reduction lino/woodcuts, dry point, etching and carborundum printing. Mark A Pearce says, “It’s all about noticing things”. Here in Ravenglass the mountains almost reach the shore, and the three rivers meet to form a perfect estuary, so there is a huge variety of landscape to notice. I make pictures to share the excitement of a light effect, a composition or a colour combination. I particularly enjoy the discipline of multi colour printing; it forces me to think precisely about the nature of what I see and how to put it across. To quote Henry Moore, “Art should help everyone to enjoy and appreciate the world”.
