About Mark

Mark is world-renowned for his photo-realistic pencil drawing.  By layering different hardnesses of lead, he painstakingly creates absolutely any subject matter. Since graduating from York University in 1993 (B.F.A. Honours & B.Ed.), he has drawn and sold over 1,100 original commissions for private and corporate clients worldwide. Private orders have included family portraits, memorials, anniversaries, wedding portraits, pets, horses, residences, boats, boudoir portraits, tattoo designs and conceptual pieces. Corporate work has included freelance work for magazines, book layouts/covers and logo designs. He has even designed the small Mactier downtown for the Township of Georgian Bay. His work has been commissioned for such notable names as the Honourable Jean Chretien, George Chuvalo (heavyweight boxer), Ric Flair (wrestler), Stella Stevens (actress), Morgan Fairchild (actress), Adrienne Barbeau (actress/author), Phil Collen (lead guitarist from Def Leppard) and Travis Fimmel (lead actor from VIKINGS). Mark has also taught his elaborate approach to drawing for all skill levels that wish to learn. Over the last 17 years, he has offered his introduction to drawing with his 'Portraiture Workshop' in Barrie, Ontario and an extension of these skill developments in his 'Wildlife Rendering Workshop' in Midland, Ontario. More than 650 teens and adults have been amazed with what they can render after 8 weeks of instruction. Applications are on this site.
