Mark Bannerman and his wife Mary Louise live in Columbus County on the farm that had belonged to his grandfather. For years he created his art while teaching art at Whiteville High School. Now retired, he is a full-time artist who practices what he preached to his students--\"to look at things differently.\" He finds treasures in candy wrappers, rain-gutter mesh, old buttons, bits of metals, and other tossed away materials and turns them into colleges which reflect life in Eastern North Carolina. Besides his colleges, he paints figurative works, portraits, and landscapes.
