Mary was born in Sacramento, raised in Folsom, and chose to live her adult life in Garden Valley to support her desire to live a quiet, peaceful life surrounded by nature. She enjoys dabbling in several mediums including glass and oil paint but her passion is clay.
Clay is an extremely versatile medium that allows her to create functional items intended for daily use, pieces built simply to satisfy the human desire to be surrounded by beauty, and everything in between. Mary enjoys exploring different techniques, forms, texture, and surface treatments so her work continually evolves. She is highly influenced by nature and the eastern aesthetic so her work tends to be simple and organic.
Her goal as an artist is to reintroduce the simple pleasure of using handmade items into the highly mass manufactured world that we exist in today.
