Growing up in West Cork, Ireland; Mary was surrounded by Colour from an Early Age. In its beautiful sunset s over Bantry Bay, she saw whispy paintings and rainbows and dreamscapes. Coming from A farming family without any background in the Arts, she graduated from Crawford College of Art and Design in 2013. She has taken part in various exhibitions in Ireland and Internationally, and has a strong interest in community and educational projects, working as a Freelance Facilitator with the West Cork Arts Centre. Her work is often interactive, and always colourful, always believing the importance of capturing the child within its viewer/maker.
