Personal Profile

Mark has been making art since he was a child.  While he has encountered many artists and designers over his career and learned a nearly infinite amount from these individuals, the origins of Mark's love for art comes from his father Frank.

At a young age Mark used to sit for hours and pour over books filled with Star Wars concept art by draftsmen and painters like Ralph McQuarrie and Joe Johnston.  He would later discover and come to admire commercial artists such as Frank Frazetta, Ryan Church, and Doug Chiang.

Mark has been formally educated in Graphic Design, Photography, and Fine Art with a concentration in painting.

He currently lives in Ohio with his wife and children.
