About the Artist
After a childhood in Niagara Falls, N.Y., Mark received a B.S. Advertising Design degree from the College of Design, Architecture and Art at the University of Cincinnati. His communications career began in public affairs with the U.S. Army, serving in public affairs as a press liaison in Vietnam during repatriation of our prisoners of war, and later with the Army’s Advertising Directorate.
Returning home, he joined Northlich in Cincinnati, becoming President/CEO in 1997 and helping grow it to one the nation’s Top 100 advertising and communications firms. Among their clients: Procter and Gamble, Sara Lee Corporation, Speedo International, Starkist, Finlandia Vodka, Yum Brands and Jacuzzi.
His career is full of volunteerism for the arts, the Boy Scouts of America, and serving on the boards of a major hospital, university and others.
Mark now dedicates his time to his lifelong passion for art through the creation of his sculptural assemblages. In 2017 and 2019, Serrianne’s work was exhibited in the American Craft Council Show, a national juried exhibition in Baltimore, Maryland. Serrianne is represented by Cincinnati Art Galleries, LLC. and has been represented by Arts on Douglas since March of 2019. He resides in Mount Dora, Florida.
