Mark Edward Adams was born in Tucson, Arizona and raised in a family full of artists and musicians. Despite his initial artistic influence, Mark gravitated toward science and earned a degree in Chemistry. While working as a scientist, Mark discovered his passion for sculpture and began his journey into the world of art. He traveled to Italy to study classical sculpture at the Florence Academy of Art. He continued his studies with a mentorship under the wildlife sculptor Rod Zullo. His style evolved from classical Italian realism to a modern representation of animals and figures. His work has been exhibited in museums and galleries across the country.
