Mark Hearld fabrics & wallpaper

Painter/printmaker Mark Hearld designs a range of fabrics and wallpapers for St. Jude's - all produced in the UK.

Born in 1974, Mark studied illustration at Glasgow College of Art and then completed an MA in Natural History Illustration at the Royal College of Art.

Taking his inspiration from the flora and fauna of the British countryside, Mark Hearld works across a number of mediums, producing limited edition lithographic and linocut prints, unique paintings, collages and hand-painted ceramics. We share Mark’s admiration for artist/designers such as Bawden, Piper, Nash – artists well regarded for their forays into the world of commercial design.

Mark Hearld has recently completed commissions for Faber & Faber and Tate Museums. A children's book illustrated by a series of Mark's unique collages was published by Walker Books in May 2012. In Autumn 2012 Merrell Books published "Mark Hearld's Work Book" - the first book devoted to Mark's work.

We have also prepared a short film about Mark's inspirations and working methods. View the film
