PROFILE

Mary paints with pastels, acrylics, inks and mixed media.

Alongside a long career in the NHS and raising a family, painting has been a journey of discovery and a lifeline during both hard times and good.

Initially inspired by her artist mother, they went on art courses and held numerous joint exhibitions together in Salisbury.

Mary also exhibited in London and  Sussex, and has been awarded commendations and prizes, most recently the Hospital Artcare 2019 winner in their Open Exhibition.

As part of St Paul’s Church community she has been co-running an informal Art and Craft group.

MY ART

A sense of joy in our Creation has underpinned my work, though man-made field tracks and coastal paths often feature too. Sea and flower studies, and some spiritually reflective work are favourite themes as well. 

My passion is for colour, vibrancy and energy in my use of paint, and some work has a more serene element. 

I love the richness and enduring quality of pastel, though a lot may end up on my face! By contrast there is the versatility of acrylics or the vividness of inks. I enjoy the freedom of using enormous brushes on large canvasses, inviting spontaneity.

Having held regular solo exhibitions as part of the Arts Trails, run by Plain Arts, I have been encouraged by many repeat customers, and fulfilled some commissions.

Currently I will be showing ten works in a Salisbury Hospital Art Exhibition from 21st May to 24th June.

I will be in the Market Square on June 6th, joining the Arts Scene family, thanks to the indefatigable Sally Edwards.

Do ring or email me to arrange a viewing, if you would like to see any of my work.
