Mark Strain

Mark Strain bio-degradable

I grew up in the south Seattle town of Des Moines WA in the seventies. My mother Sandy was a true artist, exploring many mediums in painting, pottery, glass, and textiles. Her Talents were passed down to my two sons. My son Sam builds high end custom designed furniture, in Manson. My son Jacob built million dollar show cars, and is a machinist. I attended Highline Collage in the graphic design department, perfecting my portfolio. I worked as a freelance designer and illustrator in the Seattle area producing print media. My family and I moved to Manson in 1991. I worked at the hardware store part time and did graphic design in the valley. My wife and I purchased Chelan Printing Co. and operated it together for 14 years. After that I started a metal fabrication business known as Strain’s Custom’s. Just a new art medium. Thanks to all the great clients over the years.
