Mark Nesmith
Beaumont, Texas

Some artists travel the globe seeking the wonders of the world for inspiration. Mark Nesmith finds the sublime in the everyday of Southeast Texas. He calls it “transcendence from a car window.” It could be a glimpse of the sky dancing, the ripples of a canal on his drive to work, or the silhouette of a tree while walking through the neighborhood. “Almost everything I paint is connected to memories of the places and the times I spent there with the people I love. That’s what remains with me over time.” Mark earned his B.F.A. in Studio Fine Art from Lamar University and also studied art at the University of North Texas. Fun fact: Mark teaches art at local schools in his spare time, everything from toddlers in Pre-K to high school fine art classes.
