Mary was selected by the BBC to paint the Diamond Jubilee pageant on the river Thames
Style of work
Mary paints the landscape using atmospheric conditions to describe the shapes and forms emerging within the paintings. References to fog,mist or sunlight and shadows is a recurrent theme.
She works primarily in acrylics and more recently in watercolour. Some of the pieces incorporate mixed media such as inks or pastels as the painting progresses in order to keep the work lively and spontaneous. Using these application techniques gives her a structure to formulate her own interpretation of the subject matter.
