Brooklyn, NY – Born and raised in rural southeast Louisiana, Mark started studying art at Louisiana State University. His interest in large format photography and painting steered his work towards large projects in New Orleans and Havana. Spending much of his time in the Caribbean and the southern US his interest in sculpture started to form. This brought him to grad school at the University of South Florida where he began working with installations. Projects included sound installations influenced and recorded during time spent in Westmoreland parish Jamaica. He also worked with many Cuban artists amongst the early stages of the West Tampa Center for the Arts. After receiving his MFA he relocated to Brooklyn, New York where he works now in Gowanus.
