Mary’s journey in the field of art began at a young age.  Her work has been recognized in many areas of the Mother Lode, including the Calaveras County Fair and Jubilee where she recently took several top awards.

Helping others experience the joy of artistic expression is important to Mary.  She loves to see small groups connect, relax and have fun learning to create their own simple, yet elegant, painting.  Mary’s “Whim Mobile Paint Parties” are a delightful experience that should not be missed.
