After graduating from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, Mary made the big move over to Vancouver and soon after, she found herself drawn to the beauty of Vancouver Island where she currently resides. She has painted in oils and other mediums and recently she has enjoyed working with acrylic paint in the last few years. Her inspiration comes from the outdoors, people watching and sometimes the simple way light falls on an object. Mary loves to paint animals and has been commissioned to paint portraits of peoples' pets as well. Her relaxed energy and passion for art are evident when you meet her, she loves sharing her skills and creativity and looks forward to painting with you soon, cheers!
