The portrait not only captured the very essence of this impressive man but also hit just the right note with the campus images Mark used as background. We couldn’t have been happier with his work.

Everyone leaves a legacy, whether they want to or not. The question is, “What kind of legacy will you leave?”
– Dillon Burroughs

Maurice CunniffeWe really do love that portrait. I smile every time I go by it! We attended the unveiling of my husband’s portrait last year at the opening of The Cunniffe House at Fordham University. There was a spontaneous and positive reaction to Mark’s painting for its wonderful likeness and for its composition. We immediately ordered a second portrait for our living room. It elicits the same happy reaction from our family and friends.
– Maurice “Mo” and Carolyn Cunniffe, Fordham alumni and benefactors

Everyone is born and they die, but it’s the memories they leave behind that define them and let them live on in others.

The Draime s

I had the good fortune of locating Mark Hess through one of his colleagues for some commissions I wanted to source. Not only did he embrace my initial thoughts for the works, he brought them to life in a form well beyond what I had first imagined. If you have a project requiring the skills of a sensitive, knowledgeable, enthusiastic artist, you do not need to look any further. Mark Hess is for you.
– Jeff Draime, Board of Directors, Walker Art Museum
