This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A creator of wildlife sculpture, usually suspended in air, with much negative space around them, Mark Hopkins does partial animal figures creating illusions of levitation.

For many years he worked in sales to support his family, but in the late 1970s began entering competitions. The family then moved to Loveland, Colorado, but he has his work cast at a foundry in Rome, Georgia. He has been successful, selling over 35,000 pieces from about 300 sculptures.

Biography from The Adobe Fine Art:
Mark Hopkins is a sculptor whose work ranges in sizes from tabletop to monumental.

Mark Hopkins’ work reveals his total fascination with nearly every conceivable aspect of life: from history, children, sports, music and religion to wildlife of the land, sea and air. He intends his work to be flowing and alive, a passionate and expressive of the artist himself.

For as long as he can remember, Mark has been captivated by form and design. From the time he was young boy, with the encouragement of family and teachers, he worked to develop his innate talent, and explore the various techniques and mediums of sculpture.

In addition to sculpting, Mark has made himself a technical expert in the art of “lost wax” bronze casting. At the Mark Hopkins Sculpture foundry, he monitors the casting process, insuring that the integrity of his work is maintained throughout its creation in bronze. With the help of many talented craftsmen, Mark endeavors to establish an enduring legacy of high-quality bronze sculpture.

It has taken half a lifetime for Mark to be able to devote full time to his art. For many years, the necessity of providing for his large family took him into other, more traditional vocations. Throughout those years, though, he never stopped sculpting as he believed it was the work he was born to do.

Mark Hopkins constantly challenges himself to translate the richness of life and nobility of the human soul into enduring sculptural form. In his words, “I strive to express beyond the image, to catch spirit, to reveal deeper emotions, and to share joy.”
