About the Artist


Born and raised in Northwestern Indiana, Mark now resides in Crown Point, Indiana with his two sons Adam and Andy.  A 1975 graduate in fine art at Indiana University, Mr. Polomchak has exhibited his watercolors in various art shows and galleries throughout the United States and Canada.  Prior to attending Indiana University the artist spent two years pursuing a career in music at Franklin College before giving in to his true calling, watercolors.

Mark’s heartwarming style is achieved through the simplicity and grace of his painting.  He produces a wide range of images finding much of his inspiration in the serene lifestyle of the Amish, in the landscapes of the Midwest and the seascapes of New England.  Mr. Polomchak’s variety of subject matter also includes contemporary florals, abstracts, the Southwest, and wildlife.  Mark owns the Court Gallery located in the "Grand Old Courthouse" on the square in Crown Point, Indiana.  Originals and limited editions can be found in the gallery and at major fine art showings throughout the country.
