Who is Mary?

I am a Pacific Northwestern woman, mom and wife living in the upper left corner of Washington State. I love nature and find most of my inspiration from it. I have been a lifelong creator, crafter and artist, enjoying many mediums throughout the years. I come from a creative family; I think it's in my blood. 

I am passionate about utilizing materials that would otherwise end up in the trash and turning them into something beautiful and/or useful. This stems partly from not being able to always purchase supplies but still wanting to create. I also love knowing I am lessening the negative impact on the environment. I hope to inspire others to do the same.

The artwork is created using mostly upcycled magazines. I cut out small pieces of different colors and patterns then glue them together one by one creating a mosaic style or "painting with paper."

Hope you enjoy!
