Mary is a self-taught artist from Scotland. Her work is inspired by her travels and love of Nature. Originally, painting in acrylic and pastel was a hobby but with encouragement from friends Mary has decided to open her ideas to a larger audience who can appreciate their diversity. Mary has lived in France for a long time and has grown to love the variety of landscapes and light to be found everywhere. The rolling hills and fascinating villages of Tuscany are a basis for colourful landscapes too. She has spent time not only in the mountains of Scotland but in Oman and Finland ...wonderful contrasts, and the High Arctic of Canada, where she worked for a season with Inuit artists, learning their techniques and history. She hopes you will enjoy her work.
