About the Artist
Mark Baird-Biography
Website: https://markbaird.pixels.com 
I am a self taught artist from as long as a can remember. At an early age starting in grade school, I would draw different things for my classmates which continued until my senior year of High School. It was in my Senior year of High School I actually won an Art Scholarship for a Fine Arts School in Palatka, Florida. Unfortunately, I never followed that path, as I was career driven in making as much money as I could, being I moved out on my own at the early age of 17. I continued my Art more on the side when I could find time, mostly making charcoal drawings of people, pets, etc., and paintings of Florida Landscapes. Over the years I have learned to appreciate our Florida Woods landscapes, as I solicit several Florida Photographers for their permission to paint their photo scenes as well as; my own personal trail hikes.  My experience also includes helping our community as much as possible through donating my artwork for numerous silent and live auctions. Once I drew over 60 charcoal drawings of head shots in one month and donated all the funds received for our local ACS Relay For Life of Conway team, I was forever blessed to participate, a lot of mentors and friends were made for life. My goals concerning creating Art is always on my mind, as I know someday I will have the opportunity to utilize my ability full time!
