This collection of British art by artist Mark Tisdale is the result of years of interest in British culture. I have traveled to Britain on multiple occasions but my fondness for all things Anglophile predates those trips.

It may have started later but I think my interest in Britain started while watching slideshows when my Uncle and Aunt came back from a trip to Europe when I was about five years old. Certainly those images of Britain have stuck in my mind for years since.

So my British art is very much from the heart and inspired by visits as well as years of watching British TV shows. If you enjoy the work featured here, then you’d probably enjoy my British art for sale as prints in my shop. You can find my British prints here.
