Mark creates the final framework for the enamel works of art. He designs and meticulously handcrafts contemporary settings out of silver, gold, and other exotic metals. He loves creating the textures in metal that can be seen through the colored layers of transparent enamel and the flowing design of wirework for their Cloisonne’ pieces. He then selects unusual cabochons and faceted gemstones to accentuate each piece. He is continually working to further refine his craft; constantly seeking further knowledge and skill. Some of his role-models include: Blaine Lewis, Tim McCreight, Sam Alfano, and master wax carver, Kate Wolf.
Mark and Kelly have spent many years creating together, and continue to evolve the design and craftsmanship of their work. They exhibit at over 25 juried fine art shows per year throughout the southwest. Their home and studio are located in the Mohave Desert, nestled in the foothills, about 17 miles outside of Lake Havasu City, Arizona. This peaceful and serene setting is the perfect place to decompress from the hectic schedule of art shows, and regain focus, inspiration and clarity, which is reflected in their work.
