About Mark Hilsden

 
 
  • Biography
    I am fascinated by the past and inspired by those that have dared to changed the world. My heroes are those that have courageously dared to dream, taking unknown and less traveled paths fraught with danger.

    In my thirty's I taught myself how to draw buildings creating micro detailed pen and ink drawings of buildings and town-scapes. Since 1995 I've created hundreds of commissioned house portraits of everything from country cottages to fortified and moated manor houses to castles and almost everything in between.

    While searching for commissions I discovered Napoleon's brother Lucien Bonaparte lived in  England. Curiosity piqued me. I spent five years researching his remarkable life. This became a book that was launched at  my debut exhibition in 2014 naturally illustrated. 

    I believe that live is a journey and this is reflected in my art and beside painting I love walking among fells and high country. This has led to us moving north. Beside Pen and Ink work I have explored the medium of acrylics to create artworks that reflect my love of the rugged countryside.
