Mark has drawn since he could hold a pencil. He studied painting in high school on Cape Cod, Massachusetts and attended Brandeis University for a BA and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, earning an MLA. Mark’s early influences include the painters Paul Georges and Paul Brown, and sculptor Peter Grippe, all known in the New York art scene. After receiving his Master's Degree in Landscape Architecture in 1984, he came to California in 1985 to work in Laguna Beach in the profession at an internationally acclaimed firm.
Although Mark continued to sketch and draw illustratives for his design projects, Mark renewed his passion for art by attending life drawing sessions at the Laguna College of Art. He attended painting workshops in Laguna Beach, California and the Fechin Institute in Taos, New Mexico.
Mark’s paintings are of landscape themes primarily, beaches and coastlines, roads, alleys, and agrarian scenes. Some pieces he considers like historical documents in that they illustrate areas that have since been developed or are slated for imminent development. Currently he is exploring interesting compositions with some amount of narrative content. He likes using strong contrast, vibrant colors, and loose, spontaneous brushwork. Although he paints mostly in his studio rather than outside, he attempts to paint in the plein-air style usually in sizes that are typically larger than one would do on-location.
Landscape Architecture and painting have much in common, one is painting landscape on canvas, the other is painting landscape on the land. With one you build your own world and with the other you work within the “real” world.
