Biography 

Mary’s journey to the artistic world began by having a personal longing for beauty at a young age.  Growing up in Maples, MN, Mary spent much time in nature where colors and textures became a tangible and integral part of her world.  It was years later when the personal need for art in her own home gave her the incentive to try her hand in painting.  Once taking up the brush, seeing and feeling the paint express images on the canvas, she was hooked on this new artistic expression which conveyed her quest for beauty.

  Mary’s beautiful still life paintings` evoke rhythm and a strong sense of balance.  She paints directly from life, setting up the composition in her studio from the many objects she has collected throughout the years.  Mary owes much to the artists she has studied with, including Laura Robb, Ron Rencher, and Robert A. Johnson. 

Description of work:

  I describe my work as using mainly an  Impressionistic Style.  My work is colorful, typically incorporating various flowers and still-life objects to create a painting that flows with rhythm and symmetry. I use a variety of paint thickness to add interest and dimension.  Sometimes  the use of a palette knife best expresses what I am trying to convey.  It is a unique process that keeps me interested all along the way through this artistic journey.
