To Mark Missman, art is an expression of the rapture of being… probably unveiling a fragment of the radiance within all form. He believes that art can awaken the soul to the timeless presence of truth and beauty. Born in Des Moines, Iowa, the artist spent many hours throughout his youth in museums studying the painting techniques of the masters. He was taught to draw in perspective from the third grade. When his first taste of Realism and his artistic passion awakened, his destiny became apparent. Missman’s formal art education began at Northwest Missouri State in Marysville, Missouri. At 21 years of age, Missman made a commitment to live the spiritual life as a monk and for the next 18 years his artistic endeavors were nurtured by his spiritual order.

Missman was given abundant opportunities for worldwide travel and advanced study while devoting many hours a day to painting. He returned to the United States after studying at a private academy in Florence, Italy, and was got a scholarship to the New York Academy of Art. But he chose to go to Philadelphia and attend the Frudakis Academy of Classic Realism. He continued his studies at the Barnstone Studios in Pennsylvania, before he became the Art Director at the Palace of Gold in Wheeling, West Virginia. The artist was involved heavily in creating the setting of the lavish Palace of Gold including the huge murals for the largest tourist attraction in West Virginia. His art became the subject of numerous articles in publications such as the Time Magazine and Washington Post.
