Meet Mark Noll
Mark Noll resides and works as a multi-media artist in St. Petersburg. Mark is a self-taught artist who has been woodworking since he was a child. In 2007, Mark decided to pursue his artwork full-time. He draws, paints, and designs eco-friendly jewelry using upcycled woods and even the colorful wings of bugs. He has more than 500 different designs of earrings. Mark is recognized for his intricate carved skulls that are prized by collectors in over 18 countries worldwide.
Mark’s process of making includes metals utilizing more traditional woodworking methods rather than metal-working ones. He currently works in recycled materials including Corian countertops and discarded woods, and most recently started using “Surfstone” – the resin that in the making of surfboards drips onto the floor and builds up in random colors. Mark’s designs are influenced by Art Nouveau and Art Deco, as well as aboriginal designs.
