American Samoa



Like the surreal or intensely irrational reality of a dream, Mark's oil and acrylic paintings are layered, deeply moving, emotional, luminescent, and vibrant.  People may easily forget what you tell them, but once they see the art created from your heart they cannot erase the images from their mind. You remember about 700 times more by what you "see" than by what you "hear." Art speaks.
