Mary believes Art provides expressive outlets through enjoyment, participation or
creation in any of its forms, and it is therefore quite reasonable that the Arts provide
a platform for peace, progress, acceptance and love one person to another, one
classroom, one gallery or theater, and one community at a time. Like a pebble tossed
into the water, its ripples will spread! She is a strong supporter of the Arts in Education.
Nature and architecture provide inspiration for composition in what she tries to capture.
Mary’s interests are varied, including photography, pastels, inks and paper arts and
acrylics, mixed media and jewelry art. She is most happy when using a variety of
mediums and tools, and enjoys the journey as much as the creation. Upon retirement,
Mary has been most grateful to find more creative time and many creative friends!
