Born in Coventry, Mary has spent most of her life in the country and nearly all in the Welsh Borders of the Wye Valley.
Her contemporary paintings give intriguing views of life and are intensely nostalgic, often rustic snapshots of a way of life that many people are tempted to think has long passed by.
She says of her paintings: “They reflect the small moments of time from happy memories and imagination that have been part of my life for more years than I care to remember. I sometimes pinch myself thinking how lucky I am to be a painter – every day is a new day full of expectation for the magic that painting can bring.”
Mary has exhibited her work at numerous galleries and art competitions, including Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, the RWA Open Exhibition (Bristol) and the Llewellyn Alexander Gallery (London).
