“Art gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and life to everything.”
With a passion for art and a love of the ocean, Mark Eastridge is living his dream-come-true, working in his outdoor studio on Maui. The gentle trade winds breeze the scent of plumeria through the coconut trees as Mark is endlessly inspired by the beautiful views of his art studio overlooking five Hawaiian islands. Painting since the age of eleven and studying sculpture at A.S.U.; Mark traveled, studied extensively, and worked with numerous nationally and internationally renowned artists developing techniques in various media, primarily in bronze, stone, and glass sculpture. Drawn to-and inspired by-nature’s beauty, Mark has lived in regions as diverse as Sedona, Arizona to Ketchikan, Alaska.
Mark’s broad knowledge of bronze casting led to a career as Production Manager of a fine art bronze foundry on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula of Washington State, overseeing a team of 26 artists and producing bronze sculptures for artists nationwide. Living on Maui since the turn of the millennium, Mark paints the colors of the islands and most recently uses his power tools to “sculpt” aluminum, copper, and stainless steel panels to create an illusion of turbulent oceans, flowing rivers, and tranquil waters. Mark Eastridge’s unique vision and talent come together to grace the collections of corporate and private collections worldwide.
