Mary is a contemporary landscape painter. The natural elements, large expansive sky, peaceful water, quiet green forests, the rocks and wind through the grass are the passions that dominate her work. Growing up on the Great Lakes created a sense that this natural world we live in is more beautiful and mysterious then we will ever know.
She was born and raised in Duluth, Minnesota. Growing up she was always extremely creative and lucky to have a mother who indulged her talents. After graduating from the University of Minnesota – Duluth, a move to New Jersey with her husband exposed her to the great art and museums of New York City and to the Somerset Art Association in New Jersey. Her family moved to Indiana in 2003, where she was exposed to the oils – her current passion.
