Artist's Statement

image103

Living in Maine provides access to an endless variety of landscapes.  Color and mood are expressed in the patterns and places that surround us.  Mary seeks to bring those elements onto the canvas so that we all can share the beauty.

Color and form were also a part of her working career.  After graduating from Michigan State in design, she practiced in Portland architectural offices for 25 years.

Mary exhibited oils and acrylics in stores and public institutions.  She studied painting with Janet Conlon, Tina Ingraham, Sarah Knock, Charles Sovek, Frank Webb, Jon Imber, Diane Dalke, Don Demers, Carolyn Walton and Phillip Frey.
