Mark would describe himself as an "Artisan Artist" using his skills to create pieces that inspire and inform other people.
Mark's current work is exploring the beauty of the natural world where he works using a process that shows the equally natural properties of pigments and water.
"Our species is the only creative species, and it has only one creative instrument, the individual mind and spirit of a man. Nothing was ever created by two men. There are no good collaborations, whether in music, in art, in poetry, in mathematics, in philosophy. Once the miracle of creation has taken place, the group can build and extend it, but the group never invents anything. The preciousness lies in the lonely mind of a man."
(from "East of Eden, by John Steinbeck)
