Welcome to Mark Harvey Art

Hey folks, I'm
Mark Harvey Artist Illustrator

I have been in art and illustration for over 40 years. I work from my home in St. Athan in the UK, having retired from office life in August 2020.

Art is an amazing interest; every day brings with it new challenges, ideas, and rewards. Nothing is better than starting with a blank page or screen and seeing a new image develop.

Redbubble Shop

During the COVID pandemic, I created two digital designs for the Redbubble shopping platform. Redbubble is a web shop platform that allows artists to focus on creating art while they deal with the production process. This ensures those with the best technology and equipment can print and dispatch orders to customers in any country. From those initial art works, I add new work when it becomes available.

About my freebees

Drawing is a good way for children to relax, express themselves, and develop fine motor skills. Being able to keep between lines yet still have the freedom to create art pays dividends in the classroom when it comes to learning writing skills.

Developing motor skills.

When a child starts drawing, they develop a positive grip style on the pens or pencils. A good pencil or pen grip aids in the development of muscles in the hands and wrist. Through the development of these fine motor skills, it can help them become better at typing as well as coordinate sports and activities. 

Encourages patience and relaxation.

Colouring is great for encouraging children to feel more relaxed and comfortable when creating a picture; it also helps the progression of patience in children.

Helps with concentration.

Over time, your child’s concentration levels expand. Concentration is required to focus on a single activity for a period of time, so colouring activities help further this development. 

Assists with language development

If you can spend time with your child as they colour, it can help language development. As you talk about descriptive adjectives and the colour names. When they learn these skills at a young age, they’ll feel more confident using them in different situations too.
