Mark Schneider is a full time freelance mask maker, sculptor, mold maker, concept artist, prop fabricator and toy maker living and working in Portland, Oregon, USA.

His mask and prop creations have been seen in Tv shows (Grimm, The Librarians), films (Power of the Heart, Kaiju Fury, the Hudson Tribes), ballet and theatre productions (Grand Rapids Ballet/Chris Van Allsburg's The Nutcracker), festivals (BurningMan, Fairieworlds, LIB), amusement parks (The Enchanted Forest), conventions and private collections around the world.

Working primarily in Creature Cast Rubber (a neoprene based material he is the sole distributor of), Mark designs and creates all of his work by hand from the ground up rather than outsource any of his delicate craft to overseas artisans.

2017 promises several fresh avenues of expression from his Faust & Company studio.  Expect many new original mask designs, a line of articulated rubber and plush toys, jewelry, collectible mini masks and busts, prints, t-shirts, fridge magnets, stickers and some exciting surprises as well.

Man is least himself when he walks in his own person.
Give him a mask and he will tell you the truth.
