Mark Mehaffey has won major awards in juried exhibitions internationally including the Silver Medal of Honor (twice) and the Arches Paper Co Award from the American Watercolor Society, and his publications are extensive.

Mark’s paintings are included in corporate and permanent collections around the world, and he is a popular juror, workshop instructor and lecturer. “Above all I value creativity and honesty. And although I follow many paths and speak with more than one voice, I am on my own journey. I have two wishes…one is to live a few more hundred years, for I shall never have enough time to paint all the ideas in my head … That second wish? That somewhere along my journey I will communicate with fellow travelers who will see something of what I see and feel something of what I feel…”
