Born in Toronto Ontario, Mary’s formal art training took place at the Ontario College of Art. In her graduating year Mary was selected to study Fine Art in Florence, Italy.
Florence became home for many years. Life in Florence and the beautiful mosaics greatly influenced Mary’s individual style and technique. She has spent years developing her process.
"I love the way my art allows me to meet and connect with people. I honour being able to see the way people take their time to select the piece that speaks to them. Choosing art, like creating it is a deep and personal process."
Only the finest Japanese and Nepalese papers are patiently layered piece by piece, layer upon layer to create her original paper art. Vibrant colour, and rich texture have become the signature of Mary’s work.
Her distinct style of collage attracts collectors and buyers in Canada, the United States, Europe and Asia.
