Marc has been painting and drawing his entire life.  Son of renowned watercolorist Mal Surrency, Marc started exploring his father’s studio at an early age.  At the age of 8, he entered his first art show; winning “Best of Show” among pieces entered by students more than 10 years his senior.  

Marc went on to win numerous awards and recognitions and has represented the State of Florida in national competitions.  His works have hung in the Florida State Capitol, as well as the U.S. Capitol.

Marc has always enjoyed drawing and painting figures and portraits and as a result, has decided to focus his artistic talents on portraiture.  Over the past ten years Marc has traveled throughout most of Europe.  During his travels, he has been able to view many of the masters’ works in person, allowing him to observe the masters’ application of the paint to canvas or board, as well as the subtle nuances in hues and values.

Although Marc is chiefly self-taught, he has always been interested in how other artists have handled media and the stability of the finished works.  Growing up around galleries, he has been exposed to works in various states or deterioration due to experimental mediums or unstable substrates.  In his profession as a document chemist, Marc understands the drying process of inks, paints, pigments, and dyes, and their interactions with the environment and the substrate to which they were applied. As a result, he ensures that his painting techniques and materials result in artwork that should last for centuries.
