Artist Bio:

Mark was a self-trained and prominent Jeweller – He manufactured and specialized in custom creations for his clientele. The primary metal used was gold.

Precious gemstones including diamonds, emeralds, rubies, and sapphires as well as other semi-precious stones were also incorporated into the creations. After selling the company about a dozen years ago; Mark changed his directional path and focused on his passion of Nova Scotia – and pewter became his choice of metal along with the branding of "The Art Of Nova Scotia".

Soon after, his passion for food was included in the mix, which today includes wild blueberry preserves as well as wild blueberry tea.  Mark will be selling his yummy preserves at Artfest Toronto this Labour Day long weekend.
