Marcus began painting weeks following a near death experience 9 years ago. He Lost consciosness in a sauna and miraculously re-entered life with a vision filled with vibrant color, feelings and emotion.

All of Marcus' work describes a story of the many transparent plots occurring between the characters in each piece. Some of the subtleties are not realized for many months or years by the owner of the piece.

Marcus' artistic gift was somewhat infuenced by his father, Marcus Sr. an American abstract artist (1908 - 1966) but not until many years later.
