Mark is an award winning woodcarver and has been carving for a little over twenty years. He is a member of The National WoodCarvers Association as well as many local woodcarving clubs. A self-taught carver, who is well known for his distinctive clean-cut style of carving. He enhances his self-taught style by hosting and attending seminars often taught by professional carvers. Mark is well known for his Wood Spirit Faces which he portrays in wall hangings, masks, and brooms. His Wood Spirit Faces appear most often in butternut, cottonwood bark, bristlecone pine, and basswood. After carving some are finished with a brushing of linseed oil while others are touched with acrylics. Although they are all Wood Spirit Faces, Mark's artistic eye ensures each finished piece is an entirely different work of art. Mark also enjoys carving caricatures, Christmas ornaments, elves, gnomes, and Santas. Finding one of these treasures is rare.
Mark resides in Lexington, SC with his wife, Tina of twenty-five years.
