Her interests include Plein air study, animals and nature, as well as capturing the mood of a moment. Mary has attended workshops with Michael Chesley Johnson and Lian Quan Zen. Her art is diverse, much like her interests. Other endeavors include directing children musical theater productions and workshops, co-director of the adult community chorus Da Capo, and works at the University of Southern Maine as a voice teacher and Professor for the School of Music.
On July 17, join Mary in a demonstration of how watercolor can move on a wet on wet surface. The wet on wet technique is allowing the colors to mingle and let the paintings have a looser feel. Different subjects will be interpreted in this demonstration to help inspire and build confidence. The demonstration is from 6:30-8 p.m. and is free and open to the public, as part of the Artist in Residence program.
