About Mark Karvon


Mark Karvon - Mark Karvon grew up in the Chicago area. From an early age he was interested in drawing. In High School his course work included electives in architectural design and mechanical drawing. Upon graduating, he attended college and studied aeronautical engineering for a short time. In the early 1990's Mark befriended the world renowned marine artist Charles Vickery. Through their friendship and Charles's guidance, Mark's drawing skills improved and he began to explore other media including oil painting. Not only was Charles instrumental in teaching Mark about composition and the finer points of creating art but he also offered much wisdom regarding life in general. They remained good friends until Charles passed away in 1998.

Some of Mark's early commissioned works include small illustrations for advertisements in a local newspaper and portrait work for friends and associates. Commercial work followed when from 1996 to 1997 he worked under commission for the Illinois Railway Museum creating original works depicting many of the locomotives in the museum's collection. In 1999 Mark moved to North Carolina with his wife and children. Since that time Mark's portfolio has continued to grow through ongoing commissioned paintings, drawings and technical illustrations for industrial and commercial clients as well as private collectors.

Mark's work is collected by veterans, corporate clients, the armed services and art connoisseurs around the world. His work hangs in public and private collections worldwide.
