What they’re saying …

Each art piece is brimming with intense color and in turn tells an incredible story of rural life from years gone by. The attention to detail is astounding.

I adore the whimsical style and bright colours of Mary’s art. It’s unique, fun and an incredible conversation starter.

In real estate the mantra is location, location, location. In folk art it’s character, character, character – Mary’s art has character in abundance. It’s fun, colorful and unique.
