Mark Kingrey was born in Miami County Ohio in 1950. He has always enjoyed places of nature, historical sites, and any place that captures his intrigue and imagination. His love of wildlife, nature, and old barns was cultivated from being raised on a family-operated dairy farm.
Mark uses real-life studies and photography to create his oil paintings. He has had some formal training, but he is mostly self-taught. His artwork has been displayed in art shows and private collections. Mark is currently a resident of Troy, Ohio.
Suzanne’s work is influenced by color, emotion, and the medium of paint. She is challenged and fed by the art of portraiture. Susanne was raised in central Florida where the natural beauty of the state was in contrast to the artificial colors of the tourist trade. Traveling to Central Ohio for her education exposed Suzanne to seasonal colors and diverse cultures.
