After receiving the news that mental and physical injuries received during his military services limited his job choices, United States Army veteran Mark Humes turned to producing works of art that convey his emotion. Mark later founded Mark Humes Gallery, located in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Mark is also the author of the books Mindscapes published in February 2016 and Mindscapes: Volume 2, published in March 2016.

I began painting in earnest in 2013 and in late 2014, took it up as a full-time vocation following my final retirement from government service. I have graduated from using hardware store cast-offs and now work primarily on wood panels and canvas with acrylic paints, inks, and mediums. I’m also exploring mixed media, and recently began experimenting with reactive metal paints, collage, and found objects. I am heavily influenced by a love of nature and the water, having been an avid surfer for more than 30 years, and the culturally diverse experiences of my many years traveling the world.
