About Mark Yale Harris

Mark Yale Harris was Born in Buffalo, New York, I spent my childhood enthralled in a world of drawing and painting. Though honored for my creative endeavors, I was encouraged to pursue a more conventional career. After finding success in real estate and hotel development, the artistic passion that existed just beneath the surface of my long-established business persona was finally able to present itself in tangible form upon selling my company in 1996. I began sculpting, and have since created an evolving body of work made up of alabaster, marble, limestone, and bronze.

Influences / Inspiration of Mark Yale Harris

Mark Yale Harris realized his passion in the Southwest; stone carving became his life?s work, as Santa Fe became home in the late 1990s. Dedicating himself to creating in 1996; with much to learn, the artist chose a mentor who he had long admired to assist with honing his burgeoning artistic skills, sculptor Bill Prokopiof (Aleut, 1944-1999). In the spirit the nation?s most recognized Native American artist, Allan Houser (Chiricahua Apache, 1915-1994), Prokopiof and sculptor Doug Hyde (Nez Perce), took Harris under their wings, generously sharing their immense knowledge, talent, and vision. Inspired by the geographical region and grounded in the knowledge of his teachers, he began feverishly creating sculpture.
