Mary has her artwork published in Oh West Canada, Contemporary Artists fromWestern Canada" Imago Mundi Project book, by Luciano Benetton Collection.   Her artwork will be forever preserved in the Italian Gallery of Luciano's.

Currently, Mary creates Abstracts.  Mary states "This is a very freeing form of Art.  There is such a vast and infinite mind space, to which one can use, to create their Abstracts. Some of the tools and mediums I use are: modelling paste, crackles, pouring mediums, glazes, coffee grounds, wood shavings, news paper articles, inks, metallic foils, cheese cloth, brushes, rollers, the list is endless!  What I love about painting Abstracts are "The painting methods, ideas and mediums are never wrong!"

Mary's favorite saying is "Education is a life long learning!"    :)
