Marc Yeats

Marc is a composer, landscape painter, artist-researcher, writer and poet. His practice transforms compositions into paintings, his paintings into compositions, and both into poetry, with each art form influencing developments and approaches in the other. In his book, Music, Painting, Landscape and Me (Vision Edition), Marc expands upon the immediacy of engagement with his compositions and paintings and what these artworks tell us, offering further understanding and dialogue concerning their interrelation. What does being Marc's patron look like? Marc gives patrons a close-up of his unique dual creative worlds by sharing personal video diaries and digital postcards, often using rural and coastal Dorset and Somerset as his backdrop. All of Marc’s work interprets his experiences of walking and landscape exploration. Through Marc’s stories, patrons will get a unique insight into how these transformations and relationships form the foundation of his compositional practice. Supporting a composer on Music Patron gives you a first-hand perspective on the many elements within the creative process and an understanding of the authentic journey of a composer.
