sculptor - sculpteur - beeldhouwer
Mark began his career as a bronze caster, perfecting the craft while feeling a desire to create himself. Hesitantly, step by step, and at first rarely satisfied with the result. The year 1996 marked a crucial turning point.
The municipal council of Schoten commissioned him to work out a design he had submitted for an art competition. Thus was born a new artist and sculptor, who started with abstract sculptures and gradually developed into creating stylised bronze human and animal figures. For the past 20 years, he has focused mainly on animals, with a particular fondness for birds.

Kiwi Sculpture find new home at Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum"
September 16 I received some incredibly exciting news this week from the United States: my bronze kiwi sculpture has been acquired by The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum. This marks the second time one of my sculptures has been added to their collection, the first being the sword-billed hummingbird. What makes this acquisition particularly meaningful to me is that the museum specializes in Birds in Art from all around the world. The fact that my work has found a place in a museum dedicated to Birds in Art is a true honor and inspires me to continually push the boundaries of my craft when it comes to depicting birds. As I reflect on this achievement, I can't help but feel a sense of accomplishment and motivation to set the bar even higher. In fact, I'm already well into the advanced stages of designing my next sculpture for the upcoming 'Birds in Art 2024' exhibition. In my mind's eye, I can already see the finished piece, and I find myself happily floating on cloud nine as I immerse myself in this creative process.
