Marc A Turner - Professional artist, painter and art tutor, I have been painting for many years and have worked for a painting school in Norfolk. In 2017 I opened the Turner’s Painting School in the wonderful grounds of Walton Hall in Warrington Cheshire where I run Painting courses and workshops in oil paints.
I have a vast knowledge of the master painters old and new and have studied their techniques and the mediums they used, this has helped me to develop as an artist and I constantly pass on this knowledge to my students.
My joy for art began at a very young age when I was inspired by my father’s drawings. This inspiration led me to begin practicing in watercolours and drawing. I specifically remember in 1984 looking out towards the hills at Hagenohsen Germany as I painted the beautiful landscape and realising that not many hobbies could beat this one. From this point on my interest in painting and artwork intensified.
I continued to paint in watercolour with a little dabbling in other mediums for many years, and later decided to take oil painting more seriously and improve my skills. I attended some good courses and practiced my painting daily until I felt good enough to call myself an artist. I have never looked back. I love nothing more than passing on my knowledge and teaching anyone that wishes to develop their painting skills.
