I studied at Camberwell School of Art, Edinburgh College of Art, The Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, and Skowhegan School of Art in Maine. I grew up in the Scottish Borders and now live with my family in Edinburgh by the seaside. I make a living as a designer and some of this work can be seen here.

In 2018 I opened a small occasional non-profit gallery called Gallery 5595 which I intended to open two to there times a year and show drawing and experimental work by artists from home and abroad. Covid has of course temporarily put a halt on this happy enterprise.

About the work

I make work in a variety of media, currently I am largely using wood, pigment and ink. My making process is a kind of unstructured or even accidental research and the work seems often to be arrived at through walking and reading. Much, or all of the current work explores loss. My use of media is fluid, which allows a freedom in both practice and form.

It should go without saying that all the artwork contained in this site is copyright to me, but I’ll say it anyway: all the artwork contained in this website is copyright to mark haddon 2022
