| Biography for Mary:
I am a multi-media artist. I paint in acrylic and water colour. Decorative gourds are creations I like to carve, burn and sculpt on. Paverpol is a sculpting medium I use for up-cycle projects. Mosaic garden stones are a fun creative outlet using recycled glass and pottery. I also quilt. Presently, I am completing a book of poetry I wrote.
I attended Niagara college for art training and also taught art for Niagara South Board and the Welland Recreation. I have also taught classes in my home and participated in studio tours.
Artistic endeavours take me to another place and space out of the daily routine. Landscapes, animals and flowers are subjects I prefer; Nature is always evident in my work and reflects my love for gardening and animals. I attempt to create joy for myself and others. Inspiration also comes from my family, my students and other artists.
I am blessed and thankful for all the experiences life brings and always remain open to other mediums to express my love of nature.
