Marc was born in Southwold in 1968, on the northern edge of town that borders Easton Marshes, just a short walk from the sea.
He was a foreman brick-maker at a traditional brickworks at South Cove for three years before attending Lowestoft Art School (1990-92) and Manchester Metropolitan University (1992-95). After graduating in 1995 Marc began to produce drawings and paintings in mixed media for exhibiting. He then continued the theme of his Degree Show which was a portrayal of the East Anglian coastline, including parts of his family history and its relationship with the sea through several generations. In 2003 Marc gave up his part-time post at Lowestoft College to further his painting career.
'Working in mixed media my current paintings are a direct response to my interest in unusual compositions and viewpoints and the placement of sometimes ordinary objects and buildings within them. I often explore the juxtaposition of large open skies with strands of finely detailed horizons which epitomizes the ancient and ever changing East Anglian landscape of sea and salt-marsh'.
