Nature can teach us simplicity and contentment, in its presence we can realize, we need very little to be happy.

Born in Japan and raised in Canada, Mark lives with his wife and daughter on an acreage between Nelson and Castlegar. Beginning his career as a metal fabricator, he branched out into stone masonry, living and working in the Canmore, Banff and Lake Louise area while he learned the trade. In the Kootenays since 2005, he’s now focusing on welding local recycled metal, turning it into one-of-a-kind art that will last for generations.

Beautifully detailed, Observe and Reflect deftly demonstrates how nature can teach us simplicity and contentment. In its presence, we realize we need very little to be happy.
