Mark loved to draw at an early age and now he has been inspired to create art that reflects the beauty of the world around him. Mark graduated from Emerson College with a Bachelor of Science in Communications and began a 33-year career in creative marketing in Los Angeles, Denver, New York City and Boston. He has created award-winning campaigns for global brands such as Levi's, Frito-Lay, Hallmark Cards, Carnival Cruise Lines and Estee Lauder.
Having fallen in love with oil painting during the pandemic, Mark has had the opportunity to study with award-winning artists Laura Tryon Jennings and Howard Friedland and his many of his works are in private collections throughout New England and the United States. Along with Front Street Gallery, Mark is also part of the Saltwater Artists Gallery in Pemaquid, Maine. Mark and his partner live near the ocean in both Scituate, Massachusetts and Bristol, Maine. Both locations provide inspiration for many of Mark’s works.
