ARTIST INFO

About 

 

Mary was born in London in 1972 and studied Fine Art at Norwich School of Art graduating  with a Fine Art B.A. (Hons) in 1994.  
She lives close to London and has recently decided to come back to a fine art career.  
Mary paints dramatic impressionist and abstract landscapes which are inspired by her love of the countryside and the many and varied places she has visited, creating the atmosphere and feeling of a place with the use of texture and light. 
Her love of the countryside and how it varies in form at different times of the day  depending on the light, and how the contours and colours change continuously provides  her inspiration.  
Mary sees a landscape as evocative, a place that can provide memories but where we can all interpret something different even looking at the same scene, depicting the sense of space and mood in something so vast.  
Mary paints in acrylics on paper, canvas or wood panel which all give their own different textures and uses various sizes of brushes to create a more abstract and spontaneous finish. Layers of additional paint create a more blended impressionist style.  
Each painting is intended to be viewed as if you are there and is something you can identify with, or perhaps as if we have all been there before.  
“I paint with an emotion that each landscape is unique and locked into an interpretive ‘one moment in time’.
