Mark studied painting and design at Marlboro College in Marlboro, Vermont under the tutelage of Frank Stout and Gib Taylor. This training instilled in him an appreciation for line and color that he uses in all aspects of his creative work. His oils and pastels are primarily inspired by his love for the bays and islands of the Maine coast, and resonate with the area’s myriad qualities of light and wind. Intrigued by the work of Louise Nevelson, Mark also creates striking three-dimensional assemblages that are sourced from the scraps of the boat building process.
Mark has exhibited his work at numerous venues, including the Camden Falls Gallery, the Gallery at Caterpillar Hill, The Grand Auditorium, and the Gallery at Headroom Stages. He is a past member of the Deer Isle Artists Association, and a current member of Brattleboro West Arts.
