Mark Zane

Phone: (585) 703-2967
Studio:  Knapp Rd, Barrington, NY

Oil on linen or canvas, vine charcoal on paper


Mark received his first oil paints from nationally renowned portrait painter Stanley Gordon at the age of 8.  Stanley showed Mark how to rub linseed oil into the palate, the smell was intoxicating.  He was hooked for life.  To help pay for the paints, Mark would model for Gordon's workshops.  Modeling for Gordon and seeing artists at work, set off a spark for the search for self expression.
Mark spent two years studying under his mentor, Phillip Rubinov Jacobson, learning Old Masters Techniques Egg Tempra and Oil.  It wasn't just technique though, Phil taught how to express yourself from the mind's eye and soul.
Further study under--Sandra Lee Reamer, Albert Handell and Anita West
Awards include -- Best in Show, 1st, 2nd, 3rd painting at Arts For Greater Rochester Show ON MY OWN TIME.
Mark has sold works to clients in California, Colorado, Kentucky, Pittsford, Penn Yan and most recently, a major work to a collector in New Orleans
