2015 ARTIST IN BUSINESS LEADERSHIP FELLOW

 

An advocate of Native American education, Mark's sculptures are interpretations of traditional verbal and visual imagery, including ancient Woodland petroglyphs, pictographs, traditional Oneida quill and beaded patterns, symbols, and stories. Handed down for generations on his father’s side, blacksmithing and welding techniques were taught to Mark at an early age.  "Making sculptures in metal and a variety of materials has always given me joy and an inner peace."

One of Mark's most recent sculptures, Anceint Dignity, made it's first appearance at the River Trading Post in 2015.  This five foot seven inch bison is over seven feet long.  Mark used nearly a mile of copper wire secured with 39,000 weld points.
