This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Raised in San Francisco and living in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Mark Beck is a painter in realist and impressionist styles of houses, desolate and alone and in landscapes.

After spending time as a nineteen-year old with a farmer uncle in Minnesota, Beck developed an interest in rural subjects and majored in crop science at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, California. However, before graduation, he decided his true interest was fine art. In 1983, he enrolled at the Portland School of Art in Maine, but being older than most of the students, grew impatient, and returned to California after a semester. He took a job teaching art at the state prison in San Luis Obispo, and the modest income gave him a financial cushion for painting.

His career break came in 1990, when a series of sixteen of his house paintings received much positive public attention from a gallery exhibition in Los Angeles. Shortly after another exhibition in Laguna Beach was well received with all works sold.

Mark Beck and his wife, Carmela, moved to New Mexico but he is still active in California gallery exhibitions and also has a New York City representative.
