Born in Cambridge, England in 1950, Mark J. Roberts moved to Hong Kong in 1977. Painting almost exclusively in watercolour for more than three decades, this mostly self-taught artist retired in 2004 and has moved on to devote his artistic efforts in portraying the essence of landscapes and seascapes of his adopted home. His more recent works include a series on Chinese temples in the territory. Roberts has held three solo exhibitions in Hong Kong, and one in London. He has also held four exhibitions with the Hong Kong-based art group, Artists Abroad.
