Born in Victoria, Mary Ann has been painting for over 30 years. She enjoys a variety of mediums to work in, but oils are her favourite. Most of her subjects are bold and colourful renditions sensitively inspired by the landscape of Vancouver Island, but she also enjoys still life work. Her paintings are among collections locally and internationally. A signature member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, her work has been included in many exhibitions locally over the past 25 years.
