Mark McDermott Watercolors


Mark grew up on the East Coast of the United States and migrated to Alaska permanently in 1977 after he completed his Master’s Degree in Geophysics at Stanford. He spent 10 years doing field work as a geologist and geophysicist in remote Alaska and then 25 years as an Information Technology Manager for ConocoPhillips in Anchorage. Mark has been watercolor painting from his home studio since 1980. His favorite subjects are Alaskan landscapes and images captured from his travel and nature photography. He has taken awards in numerous juried shows, including the 2004 and 2005 Arts for the Parks 'Top 100' juried shows. He was the 2011 artist-in-residence for Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado, and participates in Theme Media's Polar Arts Program artist-in-residence program. Mark now paints full time in Anchorage and travels extensively, visiting countries such as South Africa, Iceland, Bhutan, and China in the past few years. His outdoor activities include plein air painting, photography, hiking, kayaking, and cross country skiing.
