Borne out of a need to create something positive while his older son succumbed to cancer, Mark’s cynical sense of humor remained raw and honest .It is during life’s most challenging moments that Mark chose to use his talents to find purpose and inspiration as a way to maintain his own sanity and pay homage to an eight year old’s life well lived and loved .

Proper Mental Attitude illustrates “nobody gets out of this life untouched” and despite the depths of grief or despair we might just find the strength to laugh,love and live .
“We can live until we die or we can die until we die” …..hence, Proper Mental Attitude.

Mark graduated from the High School of Music and Art (NYC) and Hobart College (Bachelor’s in Fine Arts/Geneva, NY) . He was a member of the Art Students’ League (NY). Mark has exhibited at galleries nationally and his paintings are part of private collections throughout the country.
