Born in Buffalo, New York, Mark Yale Harris spent his childhood enthralled in a world of drawing and painting. Though
honored for his creative endeavors, he was encouraged to pursue a more conventional career. After finding conventional
success, the artistic passion that existed just beneath the surface was able to present itself. Harris began sculpting, and has
since created an evolving body of work in stone and bronze, now featured in public collections, museums and galleries
worldwide, including: Booth Western Art Museum - Cartersville, Georgia; the Four Seasons Hotel - Chicago, Illinois, and
the Open Air Museum - Ube, Japan.
