We were deeply saddened to hear of Mary's death (June 2016).
Her positivity, joyful outlook and creativity will be missed.
Mary was born in rural Northamptonshire in 1957. She studied at Northampton School of Art and West Surrey School of Art and later at Bristol University. For 20 years she lived near Tiverton on the Devon/Somerset border.
Surrounded by rolling hills and living within reach of Devon’s two coastlines, Mary found inspiration close at hand for her vivid paintings of country life. In daily walks she gathered ideas and sketches to use in her lively compositions where she captured the movements and habits of animals and birds in their habitat. Energetic and exuberant, her paintings celebrate the natural world and our experience of it.
