Mark Dorfmueller, the son of Pat Ramos Dorfmueller, holds two psychology degrees, he has had a very successful career in information technology.

However, Mark, who lives in Mason, Ohio, had always loved art and had dabbled in different media since he was a child.

As he explained, “We were always surrounded by artistic creativity at home.” In particular, Mark had always admired the Impressionists and had been interested in Pointillism.

Then, several years ago, when his younger daughter began ballet, he decided the ballet art form would really fit very nicely as a subject for silhouettes.

“Knowing Mom and Rita were silhouette artists, I asked them to teach me.” Most of Mark’s subjects involve either ballet, because of its poetic movement, or the garden, because of the flowers’ flowing lines.
