Mark Davis

Mark Davis_SELF_300x225I can’t remember a time in my life when I wasn’t drawing or painting, so it seemed only natural that I gravitated towards a career as a graphic designer, art director and commercial illustrator.

My 30 years as a commercial illustrator and graphic designer has a big influence on the composition of my paintings. I work in a variety of media including watercolors and acrylic, but my favorite medium is oils. Oils allow me to achieve a more relaxed, impressionistic style.

I paint from the photos that I take on a trips or hikes in the countryside.

My studio is in Boise Idaho, I have won various regional awards and currently have a painting touring the United States with Paint America’s top 100 ‘Paint the Parks’ show.

You can see my work in person at my studio in Boise, Idaho and the Mountain House Gallery in McCall, Idaho. Group or private painting classes can be set up by calling the artist at 208-989-1280, or email me at:
