Mark Kelvin Horton was born and raised in rural North Carolina. After graduating from East Carolina University School of Art in 1983, Horton moved to New York City to begin a career in advertising and design. He carried with him the dream of someday becoming a painter.
Eighteen years of living in New York were spent working as a creative director in various advertising agencies and eventually founding his own design company. Those years also provided an invaluable opportunity for Horton to view and study firsthand the seemingly endless number of masterworks of art in the city’s museums and galleries. Horton became particularly fascinated with the works of George Inness, Herman Herzog, Frederick Church and the tonalist photographer, Edward Steichen. He was also captivated by the realism of John Singer Sargent and Winslow Homer as well as the romantic landscapes of the Hudson River School painters. The experience had a profound effect on his artistic development.
During his years working as an artistic director and designer, Horton continued to nurture his “fine art side”, drawing, sketching and painting whenever he had the opportunity. In early 2001 Horton made the decision to devote himself full-time to painting. He left New York City and returned to his Southern roots, moving to Charleston, South Carolina.
Horton is particularly fascinated with the effects of light and weather upon the landscape. He paints beyond a literal interpretation of a scene to portray nature in a way that reflects his own ideas and sensibilities while capturing the spirit, color and changing light of a place.
Horton’s artwork can be found at Horton Hayes Fine Art located at 30 State Street in downtown Charleston.

On the evening of February 26th, the Charleston Chapter of the American Heart Association will hold its annual gala, the Heart Ball Art and Wine Auction at the Charleston Marriott Hotel. Horton Hayes Fine Art’s four local artists have each donated a painting for the evening’s live auction. The paintings by Mark Kelvin Horton, Nancy Hoerter, Chris Groves and Shannon Runquist were created especially for this event.
The evening celebrates the work and mission of the American Heart Association and the lives saved and improved because of the efforts of AHA’s donors and volunteers. The Heart Ball promises to be a delightful evening, bringing community and philanthropic leaders together. Last year, the Heart Ball campaign raised just over $51 million nationwide allowing the AHA to fund research and programs in the Charleston area and across the country.
