Born and raised in Philadelphia, Pa., Mary's working career was centered
in New York in the cosmetic industry. After over 10 years with Estee
Lauder as a make-up artist, event planner and account
coordinator, Mary moved to the Adrien Arpel Cosmetic Co., where she
worked as a Account Executive and Regional Manager.
Upon her departure from Adrien Arpel she worked for Christian Dior Co.
as Regional Marketing Director. Toward the end of her career, Mary
returned to Adrien Arpel as Executive Vice President. After deciding on
early retirement in 2000, Mary left New York for sunny Florida. Since
then she has been living in Naples. Within the last 2 years her interest
in art evolved.
Mary enjoys painting with pastels, acrylics, and playing in mud. She
uses mud as a background for most of her canvases. Mary loves the
texture and various color tones she can achieve. Most recently she
participated in the Naples Mural Project, along with fellow Naples
artists. The mural will be traveling to Sarasota, Fl. to be on display
in the near future.
Most canvases are approximately 30"x 36"
