Mark Cazalet attended Chelsea and Falmouth College of Art before being awarded two postgraduate scholarships with The French Government at L'Ecole des-beaux-Arts in Paris (Christian Boltanski's Atelier), and subsequently at MS University Baroda, West India with The Association of Commonwealth Universities (under Prof Gulam Mohammed Sheikh). Cazalet has completed large-scale glass and painted works for many ecclesiastical settings including Worcester, Manchester, and Chelmsford Cathedrals.
He works with fabricators in materials as varied as mosaic, mural, stained glass, etched/engraved glass, textiles, and lino woodcut limited edition books. Each year he also undertakes a small number of portraits. Cazalet's studio practice is based around drawing, painting and printmaking, usually concerned with landscape themes, informed by particular qualities of light, colour and presence. In the spring of 2012 and 2013 he was artist in residence at The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation in Connecticut.
