Mark Sutton Vane took a degree in Architecture, specialising in conservation. However, he was more attracted to working with light, and designed theatre lighting and laser shows. He moved into Architectural lighting design, and in 1995 set up his own practice, Sutton Vane Associates. The practice designs lighting schemes for historic buildings, museums, galleries and other interior spaces. Mark has lit many high profile projects, including rooms at Knole, parts of Hampton Court Palace, Leighton House, the European Galleries at the V&A and a number of castles and cathedrals. He lit the London 2012 Olympic Park and enjoyed the honour of lighting the Crown Jewels in the Tower of London.
