Born in Hubbard, Texas, Mark English attended the University of Texas and graduated from The Art Center College in Los Angles in 1960. Moving to Connecticut in 1964, he began his meteoric rise as one of America's top magazine illustrators, working almost exclusively with the largest publishers on the globe.
Mark English has been one of the leading illustrators in the US and abroad for over three decades. His unique style is easily recognizable in such publications as McCalls, Time, Sports Illustrated, Redbook, Atlantic Monthly, and others. He has won literally hundreds of awards for his work and has been the most awarded illustrator in the history of the Society of Illustrators in New York. His client list includes such notables as IBM, U.S. Park Service, RCA, GE, Ford, GM, and Honeywell.
In 1995 Mark began painting for galleries in earnest. Since that time and before, he has participated in countless exhibitions in galleries all over the world. His never ending search for new and exciting combinations of compositions and materials has continually fueled his imagination and his work is know for its rich alchemy of rich colors, texture, translucence, and atmospheric perceptions of space and scale.
Mark's work is in many private and public collections and has been exhibited in solo and group shows throughout the United States, Canada, and Japan, including the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C.. In 1983, Mark English was elected to The Illustrators Hall of Fame in New York, joining such notable illustrators as N.C. Wyeth, Maxfield Parrish, and Frederick Remington.
