Mark Stoddart is originally from Troon in Scotland where he attended various schools until, at the age of twelve teachers discovered he was dyslexic. He was then sent to school in England for specialised teaching. Leaving school he returned to Scotland and in 1996 set up his own business, Sculpt Art Creations.

Mark now lives in Alloway, where Sculpt Art Creations is based and designs three tables for production each year. It can take a year for Mark's ideas to be ready to show at the various exhibitions he attends each year. Each design is made to a limited edition of only 99, the reason behind this is that Mark was the proud owner of a Gordon Keeble car, of which only 99 were ever produced, this follows through to his unique bronze sculptures.
