With many animals in the house, Mark was never short of models.
From the Burmilla cats he and Avril bred for many years, to the animals he depicted for friends, he found them a source of inspiration and much of his early painting showed his great affection for cats and dogs particularly.
He worked in both watercolour, with Prismacolor pencils or other drawing media.
