Mary Ann

Life is full of special moments;
the wonder of St. Peter's Square, the warm colors of an autumn sunset,
the meditative serenity of a mountain lake, the elegance of a ballerina.
These evoke and inspire feelings that Mary Ann strives to capture
and portray through the richness of oils or the vibrancy of pastels.


As an artist , her greatest satisfaction occurs
when people experience those special moments
through her work.
