He has been a rostered artist with the NH State Council on the Arts and Very Special Arts for many years. In 1993 Mark received the Yamagata International Visual Arts Fellowship for his work with the disabled and disadvantaged. His residencies are specifically designed for each situation, using a wide variety of materials to make objects that illustrate and tell the story of the residency. He stresses the importance of individuality, membership in a community, and the significance of a handmade object. Some residencies may result in a permanent installation.

His work in schools is fun and energetic and designed to give individual attention to every student while illustrating the power and importance of group effort.
