Mary began her art career studying exhibition design in London. She moved to Cornwall in 1979. During the eighties she ran her own interior design company which included painted furniture and murals. She attended Falmouth College of art where she attained a B.A.Hons in Fine Art.
She now works from her studio on the Lizard, and exhibits her work with Lizard Art at The Stableyard Gallery on the Trelowarren Estate. www.lizard art.co.uk Her work concerns the environment that surrounds us, the change in the weather, the forever altering colours and shape of the landscape and the passing of the seasons. She tries to capture the essence of the place through both paint and print, one enhancing the other, evolving the work with an emotional response to the subject.
