A professor at Marywood University, Mark received his BFA in painting from the Swain School of Design, New Bedford, MA and his masters in painting from the Parsons School of Design, NY in 1983. For the past decade he has led excursions across Europe, particularly in Italy, including Padua, Verona, Naples, Pompeii, Venice, Rome, Arezzo, Assisi, Perugia, Urbino and Sicily.
