When we heard Gloucester County Habitat for Humanity was holding its first Doors for Hope Event, it seemed a natural fit for our resident artist, Mark Incollingo, to donate a door. The Doors for Hope Event takes doors and matches them to artists. The artists then apply their magic and create an original work of art. The doors get a second life with a beautiful new makeover.

Mark Incollingo is an award-winning Remodeling Designer here at Cipriani Remodeling Solutions. He not only has many years of designing experience under his belt, but he is also a Certified Aging-In-Place Specialist, and we are fortunate to have such an accomplished designer. Although he secretly admits to loving his pieces, like most artists Mark does not like to boast about his work, and many clients don’t know that Mark is also an artist.

Growing up, Mark found himself always drawn to museums. Mark laughs, “I never sought art out, it just kind of found me.” In his mid-twenties, he began painting homemade canvases. He used sheets to make them, and he likes to be able to recycle something in his projects. In this image, Mark picked this chair out of the trash to give it his “trash to treasure” treatment. Voilà! Something old is new again! His daughters love this chair and use it daily.

Habitat for Humanity will auction off its Doors for Hope in October. Since it’s a family favorite, Mark plans to give his Door for Hope his puzzle treatment. For more information, visit http://gc-habitat.org/doors-for-hope-event/

Mark’s artwork has been exhibited in a New York gallery and most recently at the Markeim Arts Center in Haddonfield, New Jersey. http://www.markeimartscenter.org Mark has sold over 50 pieces in his painting career and uses a wide variety of mediums. He is inspired by some of his favorite artists: Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Marc Chegall, and Marcel Duchamp are at the top of his list. Mark’s pieces are colorful and inspiring. They make you feel happy. You cannot help but smile when viewing his work.

Don’t be lead astray by his art work. Mark’s artistic flair is one of the reasons he is a great designer. His talents set him apart as a remodeling designer. He has a wonderful ability to take his clients wish list and create the vision for his clients.
