Artist Showcase - Mark Roland


Mark Roland has been depicting imaginary worlds, in oils, acrylics, watercolors and graphic media, professionally since 1975. An area of particular emphasis has been intaglio printmaking; producing and hand printing individual works and series such as "The Enchanted Forest", since 1981. He has worked as an illustrator for magazines - such as Witches and Pagans, Realms Of Fantasy, Different Worlds and Magical Blend - for books, for role-playing games, and for CD packages. In addition to his contributions to fantasy illustration, he is considered part of the West Coast Visionary Art movement. He exhibited in numerous gallery shows from 1981 to 2000 and was represented in several museum retrospectives dedicated to that school. Upcoming publications include the cover of "Eyes" by Jack Foley, and mixed media illustrations for "The Strangest Story Ever Told, Vol 2." New etchings, and acrylic paintings, will be on display in the LoneStarCon 3 art show.
