ORIGINAL ABSTRACT PAINTINGS DON'T JUST HAPPEN.

THEY ARE CREATED AND CRAFTED WITH LOVING CARE IN THE ARTISTS STUDIO.

I create because I have too !

Gone are the days of being a hobby painter. There was a time when painting and drawing was a hobby but today its a passion, a need, its the thing that makes me jump out of bed in the morning and fills my every waking moment.

Today the contemporary artist Mark Johansen spends hours working in his studio at Hylands House painting, thinking and exploring ideas through his unique style of abstract art.

He is not in the artist studio in Chelmsford every day but when he is he welcome visitors and is delighted to talk and share every aspect of his life, work and extensive artistic knowledge with the public. 

Its not a distraction” he says “it a joy” that is after all what art is all about, its about sharing, giving and telling stories.
