After years of showing in galleries and museums as a realist artist in the fine art world (chronicled in an in-depth interview in American Artist Magazine 1991), Mark Fordham entered the visual effects world when “Jurassic Park” created a computer revolution in Hollywood. In the last 10 years, he has garnered an Emmy nomination, 3 Gemini nominations, 1 Gemini win and a nomination from the Visual Effects Society for matte-painting.

Two years ago, Mark and his wife, Dianne, created Matte FX Inc., a company that has been specializing in documentaries and films with an emphasis on the prehistoric. Last year, Matte FX completed visual effects art direction on National Geographic’s “Sky Monsters”, as well as creating images of prehistoric sea creatures for the magazine’s 2005 article entitled “Sea Monsters”. Matte FX is currently involved with a documentary on the ages of Earth in conjunction with the renowned Meteor Studios.

Mark also accepts many private commissions to create paintings and sculptures of animals in the more traditional mediums of bronze and oil painting. His works can be found in private and public collections throughout Canada and the United States.

He is currently in the stages of a museum show in Canada where he hopes to merge fine art, visual effects and paleoart in a show creating landscapes of the prehistoric worlds in digital matte painting.
