About the Artist
For over 40 years, Mary has been preserving memories of homes, cottages, and farms through watercolor. With unusual attention to detail, she has completed over 8,500 commissioned pieces.
Mary has produced a line of watercolor prints featuring rural scenes, lighthouses, Minneapolis, and Lake Minnetonka scenes, both current and historical, which she has shown at art fairs throughout the Midwest.
Although largely self-taught, she attributes her development to an inspirational high school art teacher. "I love color, texture, lines, shadows—recreating a special home in watercolor is so satisfying."
Reasonable prices and quick turnarounds have resulted in many satisfied customers.
"Mary has completed several paintings for my family and me and we couldn't be happier with the results. She has the keen ability to translate photographs into beautiful watercolors that truly depict the subject of the photos, whether it be a home, business or car. Her artistic skill proves valuable as she easily provides guidance through the process with the end product a valued and accurate keepsake."

"One Christmas we commissioned Mary to paint the lake home for an inlaw gift. She did three small paintings depicting unique aspects of the property... they were so thrilled. The next Christmas she did a childhood home for them - it looked so cozy and actually captured childhood memories. It is such a clever gift."
