Owner & Artist

The Artist

Mark Chase is the owner and artist at Madshadow Custom Paint. He has been painting in one form or another since taking an automotive repair/refinish course in 1977. Since then he spent many years running a large commercial paint facility specializing in aerospace finishing. In addition he has carried the title of a Quality Engineer and most recently as a Brand Manager for Wizards of the Coast. In this last position he was fortunate to work with many talented artists and designers. Determined to get back to his artistic roots he and his family moved from Washington state to rural Montana in 2004. With his specialized technical background and his artistic vision, Mark opened Madshadow Custom Paint. Customers were drawn in through seeing his work displayed at the local Harley Davidson dealerships in Missoula and Kalispell, Montana. Mark specializes in vivid graphic imagery and design; his bikes are one-of-a-kind pieces of art, featuring everything from warriors, wolves and women, to dragons, skulls and flames. He works closely with each customer, providing them with their personal web page where they can view regular progress shots. This allows them to follow the progress of their design and paint job, ensuring that the original vision and concept are carried out. Besides painting, Mark is a husband and father who enjoys motorcycle riding, and is a singer and guitarist in the Missoula, Montana area.

The Business

Madshadow Custom Paint is a small family business. Since opening our doors in 2005 we have had hundreds of satisfied customers. This is not a side job for Mark, and he's not painting out of a garage. With no outside employees Mark is responsible for every aspect of your paint job. Committed to quality, he has invested in the best materials, equipment and facilities. He treats every job as if it were his own, and takes great pride in delivering stunning work to his customers, on time.
