Mark Whitley Studio

1711 Patterson Road
Smith's Grove, KY  42171


In a small shop nestled in the outskirts of Smith's Grove, Kentucky, Mark Whitley combines old-world craftsmanship with native hardwoods to create furniture with a style all its own.  Natural, oil finishes with figured maple and other accent woods bring the inherent beauty of wood grain and texture into each piece.  Clean lines and gentle curves flow throughout each design with function and strength, as each piece is built, finished and signed individually.

In July 2011, the Kentucky Arts Council awarded Mark with an Al Smith Fellowship in recognition of his artistic excellence.
