About Me

Hi World!

I'M mark steinhauser

Thank you for taking the time to stop by for a visit and being part of my journey.  My world is can be unpredictable, sometimes exciting, and full of twists and turns.

My signature series, PES Studio Model series, is conceived and inspired through studio model sketches my mom did back in the 1970's.  This retrospective series is deeply personal and I feel a strong connection with my mom as I paint.

One of the biggest problems we have today is that everyone is so immersed in social media and technology that we don’t take time to see, feel, touch and absorb the world around us, in essence, to stop and smell the roses.  I get completely lost when I am in a museum looking at art, but it’s a different lost.  I see the brush-strokes and the colors as they were laid out on the canvas, 10 years, 100 years, 500 years ago, and I feel the intensity and the passion of the artist   This is me putting my energy into a canvas; this is energy that will spark thoughts, emotions and feelings from the viewer, touching them in some way. This is being human and sharing my vulnerabilities, dreams and hopes through canvas in a way that will help others do the same. 

My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.


My inspiration is the world around me and how I move through it.  I love the sensations of touching, smelling, hearing, seeing, thinking and feeling.  I love connecting with the world around me, whether it's making eye contact and talking with a deer on a sunrise walk, or bread that I am kneading, or people that I am enjoying sharing and learning from in the walk of life.


Art is a process of committing thoughts and feelings to canvas through a variety of mediums.  Right now I like acrylic but that could change.  Sometimes the process is very sudden with just a few primary colors where emotion and power of intention are committed quickly and directly.  Sometimes it is 90% contemplation and 10% action, where it is done methodically in stages, with each stage of the canvasing telling me what needs to be done.  I am always learning and exploring new techniques.


My mission is simple, to impart my energy to canvas in a way that captures and inspires the viewer.  

With each canvas I paint there is a story or statement that gives you perspective on what I was thinking about when I painted the picture.  

These paintings are meant to speak to you in some way, to start a conversation and enjoy company, to keep you company while you sit and relax and read a book.
