Mary was born in Kent and now lives and works on the Lizard Peninsula. She obtained a Fine Art degree from Falmouth College of Art.
Her work is forever moving forward and recently she feels her work is not a direct response to the landscape but built from memory and indirect references and by a process of deconstructing and reassembling she retains elements of structure in an abstracted form by means of line and colour, without losing all recognition. She feels it is important for the viewer to interpret the work through their own perception, but still feel the sense of place in the finished painting.
She is an associate member of the Penwith Gallery, St Ives and is represented by the Market House Gallery, Marizion, She exhibits at the Stable Yard Gallery on the Trelowarren Estate and her work can be viewed on her web site.
