Mark Turner is a visual artist, filmmaker, writer and artistic leader. He has produced and taught in five major regions of the globe as the director of Horizon Gate Productions, a non-profit arts organization which he co-founded with his wife in 1981. His emphasis has been in multi-media to tell stories and produce contemplative experiences using his visuals, poetry and soundtracks. He is currently creating tangible and digital art of inspirational and metaphorical images which he then re-purposes as motion graphics films with rich sound tracks of his poetry, sound effects and music. All this is exhibited together in a conversational atmosphere called the Film Gallery Cafe which can be booked in many venues.
