Mark English

[USA] (b 1933)

"English was born in Hubbard, Texas, in 1933. His first job was picking cotton, but he worked his way out of the fields when he learned how to paint signs for visiting rodeos. He attended the University of Texas and graduated from The Art Center College in Los Angeles in 1960. (..) His first editorial assignment from The Saturday Evening Post led to nonstop work from most major publications including Reader’s Digest, The Ladies’ Home Journal, Good Housekeeping, Sports Illustrated, Redbook, McCall’s, and Time.(...) in 1967 English was named “Artist of the Year” by the Artists Guild of New York. His work was selected with astounding regularity for the Society of Illustrators annual exhibitions. (...) In 1977, he received an offer from Hallmark Cards to serve as artist in residence, which he accepted. In 1996, English began to concentrate on gallery paintings almost exclusively and soon found great success in the new venture. "
