Mark Bair of the M.D. Bair Wood Carving Studio

Who is M.D Bair?

Mark Bair of the M.D. Bair Wood Carving Studio is a woodcarver and multimedia artist living in Audubon NJ. While always having a love of art and fine craft, it wasn’t until 2000 that he found his passion combining traditional woodcarving with other mediums. His inspiration is found in both nature and traditions of the past, with an eye towards whimsy.

Mark’s work can be found in various museums and galleries around the country. He is a regular teacher at the Tuckerton Seaport in Tuckerton NJ and works with the youth carvers. When not working in the studio, Mark enjoys traveling around the country, showing his work at fine art and craft shows. Mark is available for commissions and teaching through his contact form.
