David Marks

David Marks grew up surrounded by a family of artists.


His father was a well-known interior designer and a founding member of the National Society of Interior Designers.  His brother became a highly sought-after inlay artist of sculpture,  jewelry and furniture prior to an award winning career as a green custom home designer and builder and president of Santa Fe, New Mexico‚Äôs Green Builder Association.  David's sister became famous for her feather masks and headgear.  She made the headgear for the Ewoks in the Star Wars motion picture, Return of the Jedi.

David Marks is a highly accomplished artist and philanthropist with his own work largely in private collections.  While he was an artist in college, earned an MBA from Ohio State, and won numerous art awards, he chose to embark on a career in the software industry ‚ÄĒ but never abandoned his love of painting.  Only recently has he decided to paint more and market his art to a wider audience.  His public exhibitions have just begun to appear.

David moved to New Mexico two decades ago, and immersed himself in its unique culture that stimulates the soul ‚ÄĒ and in his case, his art.  He worked alongside local artists to learn more about art from themewer


He became an avid horseman, president of the New Mexico Horseman‚Äôs Association, and turned it from near bankruptcy to the state‚Äôs best funded nonprofit horse organization focused on programs for youth.  Active in the New Mexico Film Foundation, he donated his art again and again to silent auctions that raised money for locals to help them get established in the state‚Äôs growing film industry.

David makes his home in Santa Fe, New Mexico, one of America’s great art colonies.
