Mary has been a Full Member of the SEA since 2005 and is a full time professional artist. As well as taking part in exhibitions and working on private commissions, she runs workshops at her studio in West Wales, writes for The Artist magazine and demonstrates for Caran d’Ache.
She works with a range of two dimensional media, with hard pastel being her particular area of expertise. Mary says, “When I critique others’ work, I look analytically at all the components that have made up the piece of art as well as the overall strength of the image. I make suggestions for improvements to that particular image, plus exercises to build individual approach and technique. My text critiques are usually between 800-1000 words long.”
