Mark Horst

Mark Horst grew up in small town Minnesota.  He studied pottery and printmaking in highschool and college, but his encounter with Dorothy Day and the Catholic Worker led to years of very different work.  After earning a PHD in theology from Yale University, he spent time teaching and working toward neighborhood renewal in South Minneapolis.  He pursued the craft of painting and drawing at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and the New York Studio School.  He lives in Abuquerque.
