Mary has loved being behind the lens since the age of 9 when she got her first Kodak Brownie camera. Her focus in fine art photography is to capture the absurd, obvious, decay, and beauty that others do not see. B/W, color, HDR, light, dark â€“ there is always something to be captured. Mary's work has been exhibited extensively throughout the region. Awards have been received from The Flinn Gallery in Greenwich and the Rowayton Arts Center. Her work as also been shown at The Katonah Museum, The New Britain Museum of American Art, The Fairfield Museum and History Center, The Bendheim Gallery, Ridgefield Guild of Artists, Westport Arts Center, Carriage Barn, Soho Photo Gallery, Ferguson Library, Wilton Library, Ridgefield Library and many private collections. Her work has also been published in many newspapers and magazines. Presently, she is the Co-President of the Ridgefield Guild of Artists and is a member of the Westport Arts Center, Westport Arts Collective, Rowayton Arts Center, Greenwich Arts Society, and the Carriage Barn. Artist Statement I express my artistic vision through photography and view the world as a visual treat with its colors, textures, patterns and abstractions. Behind the lens is the base negative that transforms and metamorphosizes into the song of what my heart sees. The computer has transformed photography into a revolutionary art form with all of its complexities.
