About the artist
Mary died on August 30th after a brief illness with cancer. She was a planner and a maker. She already had these works prepared for the sale, so we’re going ahead with it in her honour. Mary was actually hoping to make a few more and shift it to 40 for $40 this year, but she didn’t get the chance.
Always a creative person, Mary had been a maker of crafts including quilts, dolls, clothing and other works for most of her life. In recent years, she also explored watercolour and acrylic painting and mixed media collage. She often sold her work to benefit art and social justice initiatives within the broader community.
Works include watercolour, monoprint, and collage. Find something for your own walls, or to give as a gift!
Mary volunteered regularly with Shelter Nova Scotia and held a sale of her work to benefit the organization for a few years now.
She loved these shows, loved to share her work and help others. This was her plan, and we’re making it happen.
Please join us to enjoy her work and each others company.
