I paint with bold colors, the colors of my soul.
I’m Mary. An award-winning artist and dreamer who paints contemporary abstract expressionist works. A child of the 70’s now “Gigi” to four amazing grandchildren. I’m a lover of COLOR as you will see in my work. I was in my mid 50’s before I first picked up a paintbrush (not including paint by numbers kits as a child).
Collecting Native American art is a passion of mine. My home looks like it could be a gallery on Canyon Road in Santa Fe, a place very dear to my heart and the inspiration for my art. We’ve traveled there many times and I’m always trying to find my way back.
I paint what inspires me, makes me smile and brings me joy. My paintings are an exploration of colors, textures and tools. I allow the images to unfold and evolve as I paint.
I live in sunny Tampa, FL with my high school sweetheart and hubby of 41 years and our lovable rescue cats. I prefer the term “cat whisperer” over crazy cat lady. I’m a lifelong chocoholic who is hopelessly addicted to turquoise. Please join me on my journey to paint the colors of my soul.
Mary currently lives and paints in Tampa, Florida – and spends summers painting in Santa Fe, NM. She is a member of Tampa Regional Artists, PAVA (Professional Association of Visual Artists), Manhattan Arts International and ISAP (International Association of Acrylic Painters). Her work is collected internationally.
