"Love and beauty are two ideals I search for in my work. As a sculptor form is very important to me and I have chosen the elegant forms of animals to study and appreciate. I paint my sculptures with acrylic paint to bring them back to life from the dry chalky bisque state. I hope people feel a relationship with my art by recognizing the beautiful forms and the intelligence of the animals I portray."  Mary is a Manitoba Craft Council Artist
