Mark has always considered himself an artist even though he has worked other jobs most of his life. He has always built frames for his own work, plus those of freinds, and when he moved to Quincy Ca he decided to live out his life as a professional picture framer while still creating art. He worked out of his home for over a year before finding a suitable downtown location.
He attended the West Coast Art and Frame convention in Vegas, for five days of intense classes, before the pandemic hit. There he was trained in the art of modern conservation framing. The kind of framing that preserves your memories for a lifetime.
He continues his education from online resources as well as art conservation books and magazines.
