'My subject might be wildflowers, a garden, or a fly fisherman, but in looking closer, you'll see that the subjects I paint are really light and color. Something draws my eye and initially, my work is abstract driven. I search for the visual spark that I want to convey in the work. Then, I look at the formal aspects of painting, composition, etc. And, finally, I move in closer developing subject personality.'

Mary's work has shown in many juried national exhibitions, including Oil Painters of America, the Midwest and National Watercolor Societies. She has won signature membership in the National, Northwest and Montana Watercolor Societies, and has contributed both painting and written work for book and magazine articles on painting and design. Publications include 'Watercolor Magic', 'Gray's Sporting Journal', and 'Paint Mixing, the 12-Hue Method' by Rockport Press.
