Well off the beaten path, Mary makes her home nestled in the beautiful
mountains of North Georgia. Amongst vivid and colorful flower gardens,
her unique creations can be found, often inspiring an observer to
search for more.
A self-taught and passionate artist throughout her life, Mary finds
the direction of her work ever evolving .
"Art and nature have always gone hand in hand," Mary states, as she
reviews her eclectic style of painting. "I share a bit of my soul with every work.
One morning watercolor might be calling me, the next acrylic or encaustic."
“Encaustic (wax) paintings,” Mary explains, “are an ancient painting
medium which encompasses all the senses. The warmth, aroma, and
intimacy of encaustic painting creates a dance between canvas and artist.
The wax directs me and I never quite know the outcome of a piece,
much like life. We are all on an ever-changing journey. I just try to
capture the footprints for a moment."
Mary shares originals and limited edition prints.
