Mark Eberhard


Mark Eberhard's Biography

Mark Eberhard received his first bird book from his grandparents at age five. He has been interested in and painting birds ever since. Mark's work deals more with the commonplace than the grand, with the animal often only one small element of the overall composition. An MFA from Yale combined with a close personal relationship with nature – its forms, colors and textures – form the basis of his paintings. Mark is at home painting the many avian species that frequent his bird feeders. He also enjoys gathering reference materials during his travels and painting species not found in the Ohio Valley. He has won numerous awards both regionally and nationally. He won 2019 National Museum of Wild life Trustee's Purchase Award. He is the only artist to win this twice, in  2011 and 2019. He is included in " Living Legends" 2019-2020 Show.

His paintings can be found in public and private collections including the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum and the National Museum of Wildlife Art.
