Born in Southern California, Mary is influenced by the vividness and openness of the west coast. In her work one can see the colors of earth, water, sand and sky. Before turning her attention to painting, Mary spent many years in various creative environments including fashion, interior design and architecture. Those experiences are reflected in her work through spatial awareness and use of color. Mary’s mixed media paintings include a variety of mediums such as acrylic, pencil and pastels.
