Mark Vander Vinne (pronounced van’ – der – vin) is a Midwestern landscape oil painter from Northwest Indiana. His award-winning paintings have been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions as well as plein air festivals and private collections. Although he always had art in his life— one of his first memories is fingerpainting— it took some convincing to pursue his calling.

Mark’s artistic journey is a testament to his unwavering dedication. While attending a 4-year university in Iowa, he took a leap of faith and enrolled in a life drawing class. His art professor recognized his talent and, towards the end of the semester, advised him to pursue his passion at an art school. Mark heeded this advice and enrolled in the American Academy of Art in Chicago. It was during his time there that he not only honed his artistic skills but fell in love with both the world of art and the woman who would later become his wife, Kim. After three years of dedicated study, Mark graduated in 1991.

He has expanded his artistic understanding by taking workshops with master artists Ken Auster, Scott Christensen, Marc Hanson, and Kenn Backhaus as well as through his own studies and practices. These experiences have not only broadened his artistic horizons but also enriched his unique style. Today, he shares his knowledge and passion with others through his modern impressionist landscape scenes and by conducting workshops.

Mark is a man with many interests. When his paintbrush is resting, he enjoys spending time with Kim and their three daughters. Mark loves hard rock music, armchair psychology, and creating monsters and characters for D&D. He is also a dedicated Manchester United fan. He currently resides in Porter, IN near the Indiana Dunes National Park.
