Mark attended Wyoming Tech where he studied auto body repair and gained valuable training in welding, metals, and painting. Personal influences guided him toward what is now his full time career…sculpture.In his process, Mark incorporates 100% recycled scrap metal and parts. The found pieces are anything from tractors to toasters to typewriters. Once collected and sorted, the metal is manipulated and welded into sculptural form. He leaves the existing paint on the steel and finishes it with a lacquer. He gathers inspiration from music, dreams, art…life. “My process is all about the moment and the purity of creativity”.
