Mark S. Holland
Objects in nature are a fascination for me. I paint what has interested me since childhood: plants, flowers, trees, fish, shells, birds and animals.
As a child I would draw what I discovered in nature. I was always outside. Woods, lakes, pastures, rivers were my sanctuary and playground. In turn it was natural to me to draw these things I found interest in. I am still doing that as an adult.
Curiosity has been a gift to me. By drawing and painting, I learn about these natural things. The curiosity never leaves me; the urge to capture the world is strong in me. My paintings are infused with the energy and exciting beauty of nature.
