Mary Ann is a self-taught artist and licensed speech-language pathologist, who finds inspiration in just about anything and everything around her. In addition to making art, Mary Ann loves yoga, gardening, antiquing/junking, exploring, working with her speech students and following her bliss whenever at all possible.  She resides in the middle of cornfields and woods with her very supportive husband and kitty tribe in southern WI.

Mary is a painter and art educator living in the Greater St. Louis Area. She loves creating mixed-media paintings layered with maps and geologic drawings.
This work was inspired by her experiences taking walks and hikes outside, listening and reconnecting with nature.
