An internationally collected and award winning artist, Mark Mille has been creating beautiful paintings, illustrations and photographs for over 35 years.
His original fine art oil and pastel paintings are in corporate, private and museum collections across the country and abroad. As a freelance illustrator he's produced advertising and editorial illustrations for major national clients including Pepsico, Dow Jones, Nabisco, United Airlines and Dell Publishing. As a team member for Conrad Schmitt Studios, a nationally renowned historical restoration & design firm, he's designed stained glass windows, statuary, murals, liturgical furnishings and interior decorative schemes for churches, cathedrals and historic theaters across the United States.
Throughout, the one constant has been the artist’s camera. His family's old Kodak Brownie camera and his father's 3D slides fascinated him in childhood. As a commercial illustrator a 35mm film SLR became a must for shooting reference, and invaluable for refreshing the memory while painting.
Inspired and energized by the natural landscape, and embracing the latest capture, post-processing and printing techniques, he remains more enthused than ever for exploring new avenues of artistic expression.
Born and raised in the upper Midwest, Mark and his wife Donna currently reside in Boise, Idaho.
