About Mark McKain

About the Artist


Mark has loved and done art all his life. Throughout his elementary and middle school years he was fortunate to have attended a parochial school in California that had a good art program. There he was exposed to good drawing technique and the caring guidance of a teacher whom he remembers fondly. This initial experience set in motion a lifetime habit of keeping a sketchbook on hand and constantly drawing in the moment.

While serving in the U.S. Air Force-- at his first duty station in Southern California-- Mark encountered artists who placed their primary emphasis on the human form and the importance of working from life. During his following tours of duty, special duty assignments such as, portrait commissions; being hired to do quick charcoal portraits of people at their birthday parties; special duty to design a squadron patch, or a stint to do an architectural rendering of a proposed building for the base newspaper, regularly came Mark's way.


After completing his military service, and while a student in college Mark continued doing his art. He quickly gained recognition and was used for commissions, promotional projects and-- in particular-- the 1981 cover-art for his college yearbook.

Currently, Mark resides in the Atlanta area with his wife, Pat. As a juried member of the Portrait Society of Atlanta, Mark works full time doing portraiture, large narrative work depicting biblical scenes and other figurative subjects.
