Since gaining my degree I have taught at the London institute and held my own weekly class in mosaic for over 12 years.

Mark Alger specialises in Outdoor (architecture/man-made subjects) and Landscape Photography, although he has also undertaken commissions for product work, most recently for food imagery.
Mark looks to create images that will encourage an emotional response, trying to evoke a feeling of time and place and continuing to do so with a real sense of personal exploration. Whilst not averse to portraying the classic vista or broader view he will often seek the intimate aspects of a composition, attempting to ask questions through his image making.
I am a visual artist, currently working on a series of charcoal drawings of historical women artists. I also paint portraits in oils. I have been involved in many of the murals around East Oxford and elsewhere, and take on private mural commissions.
