Mary Denning - Premium Artist

Mary's interest in pastel painting began during her years at Whitworth College in Spokane, WA where she majored in art and elementary education. Though she has worked in watercolor and oil as well as calligraphy, her interest has consistently turned primarily to pastel because of the medium's potential for glowing, vibrant color and the harmony achieved in bringing together lights and shadows.

Mary enjoys painting landscapes, portraits and still life using subject matter that is meant to evoke a sense of intimacy, warmth and community. She has also done works portraying family members, and especially enjoys doing commissioned works.

She was a member of 'TAG', the art group of Spokane prior to moving with her husband to western Washington, and is currently a member of the Northwest Pastel Society. She has won numerous awards for her work, and her paintings have been displayed in galleries and shows throughout Washington and Oregon.
