Expressing the color, light, and many moods of nature, has kept me busy painting and making things since I was a little girl. My deep appreciation and love of nature influences my artwork both in the materials used and my expression of art. I find it intriguing to find older, unique items and give them a second life. Coming up with new designs for my glassware and paintings, or thinking about some new project, are things I love to do. There is a joy in making something useful and artistic that will hopefully bring happiness to those who use it. My hope is that my paintings may inspire you to look at the world around you with a renewed sense of wonder and gratitude.
After selling at boutiques and art fairs for many years, I decided to expand my markets wider by joining Etsy under the shop name of marysworkshop. I love selling my original artwork on canvas, as painted glassware, hand-painted glass vases, and also creating various handcrafted items on that great site. Selling on Etsy has connected me with so many wonderful people, but never have I been as honored to have my work purchased for a more beautiful reason than this: http://justsomethingimade.com/2010/04/sweet-sixteen/
Now I'm thrilled to be able to offer you prints of my work here on this site, as well. I hope you will enjoy the opportunity to purchase prints of my work in the various formats that are offered. I love the variety of printing options and the fact that some of my sold work will still be available for interested customers. Thank you to everyone for your support! You have given me the amazing gift of being able to use my talents to do something that I love.
