Mark Malone is a native Texan. A former country boy, he now resides in the big city of Dallas.. He became interested in pursuing art many years ago and after several years of study decided to make it his career choice. The inspiration for his work is quite varied. He loves the incomparable beauty of New Mexico and frequently travels there to gather material for his landscapes. Still life, abstracts, florals and wildlife are also represented in his work. He is constantly challenging himself to break out of his comfort zone and his work reflects this in a variety of styles and techniques. He is best known for his bold use of color and often tries to give his paintings a sense of “movement”. He loves to use palette knives and thick rich impasto to provide texture to his canvasses. He views art as a constant evolutionary process and says he cannot imagine doing anything else.
