Mary grew up in Oklahoma, and now lives in Texas. She always loved art, but it was not until her children were grown, and she had finished her Ph.D. that she was finally able to do what she always wanted to do--study drawing and watercolor painting. Mary says she paints the "colors of life" in her wide variety of watercolor subjects - bright florals, cowboy hats, chickens-- subjects that she "just has to paint!"
Mary has studied watercolors with regional and nationally known artists-- including Zoltan Szabo, Ken Hosmer, Tom Lynch, Naomi Brotherton, Carol Maddox at LaRomita in Terni, Italy, and Judy Morris in France.
