 Artist & International Ski Instructor


Mark Gear, a contemporary British artist, expresses his creativity through acrylics on canvas. Residing in the famous ski destination of Chamonix in the French Alps since 1996, Mark divides his time between painting and indulging in his passion for skiing.

Beyond his identity as an artist, Mark serves as an elite-level ski instructor through his business, All Mountain Performance. Since 2004, he has been offering off-piste ski courses tailored for experienced skiers.

Mark's artistic endeavors stem from his imaginative exploration, bringing forth snowy landscapes and dynamic skiers. His unique approach combines artistic prowess with an extensive understanding of skiing and mountain environments, resulting in vibrant and one-of-a-kind pieces.

In his skiing-themed series, Mark delves into the nuances of snow texture, the interplay of light, and the contours of the terrain. By seamlessly blending his artistic talents with his skiing expertise, he skillfully captures the essence of awe-inspiring skiing skills.

Mark's artwork adorns the walls of private collectors worldwide, including the homes of professional skiers. Additionally, his work has gained recognition in the arts and culture section of Outside Bozeman Magazine in the USA.

Outside the ski season, Mark shifts his focus with the changing seasons. His artistic inspiration transitions away from skiing, drawing from the natural world and the various places he explores.
