Artist who did a foundation course at Chelsea School of Art, 1979–80, then gained an honours degree in fine art from Central School of Art & Design, 1980–3. In 1981 he won a bursary to study painting in Quimper, France, in 1987 the Lloyds Young Printmakers Award. Publications included Almond Fields, 1989; and in 1991 Theatre, a set of 26 etchings, and Three Stages. From 1988 Marsh held a number of exhibitions with Benjamin C Hargreaves, who sponsored his 16-month walk around the coast of England and Wales starting in July 1991. This led to a number of exhibitions in which Marsh brilliantly caught the spirit of place using pencil, oil-sticks, watercolour and gouache. Victoria & Albert Museum and Imperial Chemical Industries own examples. His father was the artist Ray Marsh.
