Let Mark Linley inspire you to pick up your pencil and create a magical masterpiece
Mark Linley has been an art teacher for many years, running several very popular evening and holiday courses. Back in 1989, he was employed as a health education graphic artist in Birmingham schools, adding a new dimension to the teaching of health education by encouraging children to learn while they draw. Mark's fiancee, Pat, produced the above drawing of Mark. She was once his student, and then his assistant for nine years and now, he says, "We have decided to marry after being together a great deal for the past twelve years. I'm given to making hasty decisions!" Mark's infectious enthusiasm and passion for drawing shines out from his highly successful series of drawing books. His motto is that, "You can learn to do anything if you think you can. If you draw something badly, it means you are looking at it in the wrong way. Anyone can draw if they want to, as long as they observe carefully".
