Mary has been fascinated by all sorts of artistic endeavors from her childhood and was raised by parents who themselves were creative individuals. Mary obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Ohio University with a minor in Sculpture and over the years, she has dabbled in various creative outlets including drawing, quilting, painting, woodcarving and clay, but recently has focused on paper mâché sculptures. Mary has a profound love and appreciation of all animals, great and small, and this devotion is clearly seen in her whimsical, humorous animal sculptures. She thoroughly enjoys the process of creating each and every piece and hopes they bring nearly as much happiness and joy to everyone who views them.

Artist Statement:

Most of my recent work has been fashioned from paper mâché and mixed media using recycled materials.  I have a whimsical bent and a deep love and appreciation for all animals, but especially for dogs and cats.  I never know how each new sculpture may evolve as I begin.  They always surprise me as they come to life with their own personalities and stories!  I try to inject humor and warmth into each piece and hope that when each is finished, their happiness and joy radiate to all who see them.
