Mark Sutherland has been a professional craftsman since 1979, specializing in models of the nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century ships and boats, scrimshaw artifacts, and decorative ship carving and figureheads.  He began building ship models at age eleven and began his professional career on Nantucket with commissions for models in bone and repair work.  He has developed a unique style of half-hull modeling, based on the nineteenth-century “shipping office” style.  In 1997 he was awarded the New England Foundation of the Arts Fellowship Grant Award.  His work can be found in several shops on Nantucket and his ship model the “Charles Morgan” hangs outside Zero Main Street, Nantucket. sutherlandshipmodels.com
