    Mary divides her time between Chicago, and her studio in southwest Michigan.  Her work can be seen at various galleries across the country, and she has exhibited paintings in Italy and South America. Her work has been featured in Newsweek magazine‚Äôs internet art gallery. She was an adjunct faculty member, teaching painting, at Shimer College from 2000 to 2005, and presently teaches at the Krasl Art Center in St. Joseph, MI. Her Bachelor of Arts degree is from the University of Chicago, and her Master of Fine Arts degree is from the University of Minnesota. She has also studied at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Princeton University. Her work can be seen in several publications such as The American Art Collector, The Artful Home, The Chicago Art Scene, and Suite Home Chicago.

    She paints on large canvases, but also creates small works on paper, which utilize acrylic, watercolor, pencil, and ink.  She explains her approach to painting as analytical, playing with formal elements of design that deal with the compositional relationships between color, pattern, texture, and line. Despite her attention to careful analysis, she gladly embraces the accidental aspects of creation, utilizing, and bringing life to the random mark. By mingling abstract and figurative elements, she allows the viewer space for imaginative thinking.
