Mark Barone is a representational painter who has been mastering his passion with oils for the past 40 years, and his passion is painting struggles of the human condition. Mark received his BFA from the University of Minnesota, and his MFA from Southern Illinois University. His work hangs in collectors homes around the world and his accolades too long to list; including a PBS documentary about his art project for social impact. 

In addition to his highly awarded art career, Mark received great recognition for creating the first successful and highly awarded artist relocation project, designed to support artists and revitalize blighted neighborhoods using the arts; which became the model used by cities to promote art as an economic engine.


Teaching is one of his greatest passions because he gets to pass along his knowledge and inspire other artists seeking to deepen their work and free themselves up to become one with the paint.

"My time with Mark, was my - ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ moment. I learned a new way to paint and layer glazes, how shadows work, and how color can paint a feeling and emotion. Mark is an amazing artist, and yet he can explain and teach you what he knows - and make it seem effortless. His approach to teaching made me feel comfortable and eager to learn more. Mark and Marina are truly beautiful people - both inside and out. They made me feel as if we had been lifelong friends. I am truly blessed to have had this experience and equally grateful for their hospitality and kinship. I encourage anyone who is interested, take this opportunity. You will not regret it. It was truly a life-changing experience for me."
