Through some smart decisions and ‘being in the right place at the right time.’ Mark created his own path to artistic freedom.

In this episode, Mark describes the calculated moves he made to build his career. And how he learned that those calculations will only get you so far. To sustain an art career, the artist ultimately must discover their authentic voice, that thing that keeps him fascinated and engaged with his art.
