Mark Lewis is a jeweller and silversmith living and working in London. He also has a longstanding interest in contemporary approaches to landscape drawing and painting. Mark was a principal lecturer in the John Cass Department of Art Media and Design at London Metropolitan University until 2009. Drawing has always been central to his practice and recent work has focused significantly on gesture and mark-making to create forms of visual shorthand. Mark extensively promotes these techniques in a variety of educational contexts as methods of capturing the essence of form and structure and a way of liberating creative thinking.
