About Mark Sofilas

Born in 1961. I am originally from Western Australia but migrated to the UK in 2005. I was an illustrator with over 20 years' of experience in the advertising industry but took the opportunity, on moving to the UK, to turn to fine art, something which I had always wanted to do. I now paint full time from my studio in Leeds and have developed a reputation and following for my original oil paintings of the beautful Yorkshire countryside, particularly coastal scenes of the Heritage Coast, such as the fishing villages of Staithes, Robin Hood's Bay and Whitby. As well as creating original oil paintings which are exhibited in galleries across Yorkshire, the north of England and also in London, I produce prints of my paintings, some of which are limited editions.
