This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following information is from Tommie Lu Storm Schewe, daughter of the artist.

Mark Storm, author and artist, was born in Valdez, Alaska on September 4, 1911 to Bertha Catherine Kennedy and Lynn Whippo Storm. He lived his adult life in Houston, Texas. He died in Houston on October 4, 2002. He was educated at Austin High School and The University of Texas.

He illustrated Picture Tales of Mexico written by his brother, Dan Storm.  He wrote and illustrated Gruyo of  the Flying H, a children’s book, but he was best known for bronzes, portraits and many, many paintings and illustrations of ranch life and western scenes which are in private collections. He was interested in western history and the accurate portrayal of ranch life. He did a beautiful series on the round-up and cattle swim across Matagorda Bay each Spring and Fall to winter the herds on the barrier island.

For more than fifty years, he did the artwork for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo where he was a Lifetime Director and member of the Speaker’s Committee and founding member of the School Art Committee. The dining room of the Houston Livestock Show (aka Rodeo Houston) has several portraits he did of directors of that organization.

He was also a member of the Downtown Rotary Club of Houston and did the artwork for their Distinguished Citizen Award for over thirty years including those for George Herbert Walker Bush and Ima Hogg. He was a founding member of The Texas Cowboy Artists’ Association. He also designed the Vince Lombardi Award for the best college lineman of the year.

Storm was the grand-nephew of artists, George Storm and his sister, Leonora Storm Darragh, well-known Pennsylvania portrait painters of the Civil War era. Several paintings of George Storm's are in the State Museum of Pennylvania in Harrisburg.


This biography from the Archives of AskART:
From Houston, Mark Storm was a painter and sculptor of western figure and genre. For many years, he was a volunteer at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. In 1993, he completed a life-size portrait sculpture of H. Stuart Lang, president of the show in the early 1960s, and the sculpture is at the entrance of the Rodeo's administrative offices.
