Mark Schmitt Mark’s unique art consisting of tile and wood has been developed over several years.  One of only a handful of artist working in this medium, his art is recognizable by the precision cuts and spacing of tiles in his wall hangings, mirrors, clocks and tables.  His art may be viewed at the Blue Morning Gallery in Pensacola, and the Dragonfly Gallery in Milton.  Each original piece takes between 10 and 15 hours to create over a period of 7 to 10 days due to various drying times of stain, adhesives, polyurethane, grout and sealant.

A native of Kent, Ohio Mark enlisted in the Navy flying as an Aircrewman on the P-3 Orion aircraft venturing to over 50 countries.  He earned a commission in 1985 retiring as a Commander following 33 years of service in August of 2005.  After retirement, Mark and his wife Anita (along with friends and family) built an 800 sq.ft. studio over the course of a year and started his tile art business Mark of distinction in June 2007.

Mark and Anita have resided in Pace, Florida since 1996.  He has a Masters degree in counseling and psychology from Troy University.  Mark is also on the American Cancer Society’s Volunteer Leadership Council for Northwest Florida and a volunteer driver for the Road to Recovery Program.
