Mark Stephenson, a multi-talented native of Misenheimer, relocated to North Carolina after living in New York City for ten years. A graduate of Pfeiffer University, NC State University, and UNC-Greensboro, Mark has earned degrees in Civil Engineering and Vocal Performance.
Stephenson went to New York to
pursue a career as an opera singer, but while living in New York he
began experimenting with watercolor and later with oil and realized
that he needed to rediscover a creative part of himself that had
lain dormant much too long.
While in New York he studied at the prestigious Art Students League with noted painters and sculptors. Stephenson was granted acceptance to the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s copyists program to paint inside the Museum, copying paintings from Old Masters.
Since returning to NC, artist Mark Stephenson was designated the “Official Portrait Artist” of the 75th Anniversary Miss North Carolina Pageant. As an artist Stephenson specializes in portraiture and maintains a studio, "Mark Stephenson Painting, Portraiture and Fine Art," located at 110 South Main Street, in Salisbury. He and his wife Caroline reside in Misenheimer. You can visit his website at www.markstephensonpainting.com
Stephenson still enjoys singing and has appeared in many Uwharrie Players productions including "Of Mice and Men," "The Sound of Music," "The Fantasticks," and "Sweeney Todd." Whatever the role requires, Mark has the talent to deliver.
