Biography from Whistle Pik Galleries:
Mark Haworth was raised in an artistically talented family who has always encouraged him in his career.  Mark discovered early his natural aptitude for drawing, which was practiced and trained throughout his primary and secondary school years.  Several family visits to the East Coast during his childhood exposed Mark to some of the finest art museums in the U.S.

After high school Mark was apprenticed by the nationally renowned portrait painter, Glenn Bahm.  Glenn taught Mark that one could make a career of painting only through a sound conventional training in art fundamentals and an in-depth study of the old masters. Glenn stressed the importance of color, composition, values, and edges.

Mark entered Sam Houston State University in 1973 to study classical guitar, but by his sophomore year he changed his major to art, graduating in 1977 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree.  After college, Mark primarily focused on commission work, painting several commissioned landscapes from Florida, Louisiana, Texas, the Southwest, and Mountain States.

In the summer of 1983 Mark moved to Fredericksburg Texas.  “The scenery around Fredericksburg is a constant source of inspiration. There is a beautiful quality of light here.  The way this light falls on the pastoral landscape, creeks and hills spiritually moves me, so that I must capture it on canvas and paper before it all changes or disappears.”

Mark regularly paints in both oils and pastels.  He has participated in a number of one-man and group shows over the years.  He also quotes his favorite American artist, George Inness, saying, “A work of art does not appeal to the intellect.  It does not appeal to the moral sense.  Its aim is not to instruct, not to edify, but to awaken an emotion. Its real greatness consists in the quality and the force of this emotion.”

Mark’s work is printed by Somerset House Publishers, and his commissions include three 12-foot-long landscapes for Bank One, Oak Hill National Bank, and Frost Bank. He currently resides with his wife, Barbara, in Fredericksburg, Texas.
