Mark Oehlert

Mark is an artist who attempts to depict the mood and feeling of a particular group of people, moment or place. Through his art, he is energized by the absolute beauty and simplicity of people as an inseparable part of landscape. Self-taught from an early age, Mark sought out working artists learning not only various techniques, but attitude and spirit from each. From these artists, he developed his own philosophy of seeing and creating the sometimes magical connection between art, place and narrative. Mark attempts to share this magical artistic vision through the paintings he creates. “It is my hope that each time a person experiences one of my paintings, they are not only moved, but also connect a bit more of their own narrative with my art.”

Born in Los Angeles, Mark’s family moved to Colorado when he was just two years of age. For 18 years, he hiked, hunted, camped and painted in the Rocky Mountains and surrounding western states. He moved to San Antonio in 1989 where he now paints and resides with the loves of his life, his wife Nancy their two daughters. Mark has won numerous awards over he years and is currently represented by PlanetBronze Fine Art Gallery in Bozeman, MT. He has a BA in Advertising Design and has taught art privately for more than 10 years.
