Featured Mailbox Artists » Mark Ray  

Mark was born in Cincinnati Ohio on July 27, 1966. Mark grew up catching bait and fishing the creeks and streams in and around Ohio as a child. Mark, like all kids growing up got grounded for the normal childhood mishaps we all encounter, but Mark put his temporary lack of freedom to good use sketching and painting anything from superhero's to the fish he would catch.

Mark continued to draw and paint throughout his years in grade school, and after serving a four year enlistment in the U. S. Army, Mark became a Police Officer in Charlotte, North Carolina and continued on to serve with the PB county, Florida, sheriffs department for 12 years.

It was while Mark and his family lived in Palm Beach County that Mark started fishing the game fish rich waters off the coast of Florida. Mark would come home from fishing trips and do sketches of the beautiful saltwater fish that he had encountered. "The saltwater and fish that inhabited the waters intrigued me to the point that I wanted to put their images on paper and canvas to enjoy."

Although Mark has never had any formal art classes, he contributes his artist ability to diligent hours of practice and a very patient and talented high school art teacher. Currently, Mark resides in South Carolina with his wife and two boys. Mark retired from police work after being injured on duty and is pursuing his artwork full time.
