Mary’s dream of becoming an artist began by returning to school at the age of 53 to discover the “world of art.” Five years later, she graduated with a BFA degree in studio art from Sam Houston State University, Huntsville, Texas. She believes no matter what the age, one can grow and give. Studying in Mexico and Italy added layers of
learning to see in a new way. Wanting to share everything she had learned, Mary taught high school art for seven years before moving to Arizona to explore her own work as a ceramic sculptor, forming and carving clay inspired by nature. After 11 years, her creative expression has expanded into 2D work once again. Mary now lives in Fulsher Texas and continues to love the idea of spontaneous imagery with surprising results.
