Recording the disappearing scenes of the south and aviation history and Mississippi sport legends, such as Archie Manning (Mark is pictured here with Archie Manning as Archie signed Mark's painting Rebel Days) and Brett Favre, is his passion. Mark’s main inspiration for painting scenes of the days gone by is his children. He wants to create a history for them of the simpler times though his paintings. He has been painting the disappearing scenes of the south for twenty years, but now it is even more important to record a legacy for his children.
Following a long line of artists, Mark’s talent and his interest in art came to him naturally. Mark is now a full time artist, painting daily at his Ridgeland, Mississippi studio. His time is spent mostly on commissioned paintings and limited edition prints. Mark Millet has been commissioned by numerous companies and individuals throughout the country to create original works of art which depict the history of our country. Millet has also been commissioned to do portraits including
Jerry Clower, Sonny Montgomery, and Chuck Yeager.
Mark Millet is a charter member and president of the Professional Artists League of Mississippi, as well as a member of the Mississippi Watercolor Society.
