Who is Mark Algar?


Mark Algar was born in the Yukon Territory in northern Canada and grew up in Ontario, Canada. His interest in art began in elementary school and continued in the background throughout his working career, which took him around the world.


Fiber arts became an interest as a young adult, including a course in weaving while living in New Zealand. After moving to the United States in 1999, his art expression centered on oil painting. Subsequently, Mark was transferred to Paris, France for four years. He received strong inspiration from the art museums, cityscapes, and landscapes in Paris, rural France, and around Europe. This resulted in additional oil paintings, the occasional watercolor, and sketches. ​ Upon returning to the United States, he was coached by oil painter Becky Parks in Dallas, Texas. He retired from his first career from the corporate world in 2017 and he settled in the Phoenix, Arizona area. Development as an artist continued through courses at the Scottsdale Artists' School, membership in the Scottsdale Artists League and coaching by artist Susan Diehl. In early 2020, Mark relocated to Ontario, Canada to be closer to family, but keeps his Arizona contacts close by using social media.
