Mark Larson

Mark is an artist who enjoys an outdoor life; hunting, fishing, and packing into the Wyoming wilderness. His plein air work  in oil and watercolor is yet another reason to be outdoors.  He strives for authenticity in artworks that not only evoke an impression  of the time and place, but imply a story that connect them to ourselves.  He likes to incorporate western history, mountain lore, and cowboy mythology in his work.

A graduate of the University of Wyoming, Mark returned to his hometown of Cody where he worked with acclaimed artist Harry Jackson, his mentor and friend.  In 2002 he accepted an art teaching position with the Natrona County schools.  Now retired, he paints full time and teaches part time with workshops, Casper College Community Education classes ,and  Nicolaysen Art Museum education programs.  He divides his time between studios in Casper, Wyoming and Kelly in Jackson Hole.
