Hi there! I'm Mary. I'm an Austin-based, self-taught artist.I was born and raised in El Paso, Texas. As a third-generation artist, I grew up surrounded by art supplies and music. My early memories include watching my mom paint portraits and my dad perform with his band. My work is intimate and cheeky, an homage to the complexity of women. Whether I am painting in my studio, curled up on the couch with ProCreate, or embroidering a shirt on the back porch, my art is made from the peacefulness of my home and the restlessness of my heart.
