Something about Mary:

 Mary wears many hats:
Mother; Grandmother; Great Grandmother; Retired Math and Physics Teacher; Musician (composer/performer); Photographer; Artist (drawings and graphics); Published Poet; Progressive Activist (including environmental activism)

Her creative philosophy is that thought-provoking, easy to understand art can expand the horizon of the viewer or reader. At the same time, it helps the artist to get her thoughts and emotions across to a wider audience. In a world where attention-span is short and distractions abound, art has tough competition. Nevertheless, art remains an extremely important tool for both, reflecting upon, and shaping our lives.
