Howdy, I am Mark. Visual Art is a passion that pre-dates my verbal communication and is a comfort zone in and out of the studio. I describe my art as eclectic; it is a collection of my thoughts on a page. As a child, I desired to be an artist and I attended Tennessee Governor’s School for the Visual Arts between my Junior and Senior year of high school where I gained experience in jewelry and graphic design. I struggled to make a decision about my career journey, but ultimately I picked science education over graphic design. I taught high school in North Carolina and Tennessee, serving my Lord as best I could. Upon my disability being fully documented, I returned to art making, and it became a peaceful and calming way to connect with others. In addition to art, I also enjoy cooking, frisbee golf, mountain biking, and hiking. Please enjoy exploring the worlds within my art.
