About

I am a painter that became on a stressful day in early 2004. Before that time I never allowed myself to do more than doodle the alphabet. My Mother was creative in home arts and milinary, cake decorating, sewing, ceramics etc. but she drew the line at painting. Therefore I thought artists had to be born aware of their gift.
Self Taught, Visionary, Naive, Alla Prima, Folk, Outsider-all names my art has been called. In the vein of Grandma Moses, Mose Tollivar, Jimmy Lee Sudduth, and others who found their path later in life and followed it --there I go.
With two first names (born a week before Christmas in Baltimore, MD) and with a colorful style, I paint each day. Spontaneous and primitive, I will almost run to my painting table when a thought or emotion takes over. This drive is almost like an obsession and as a former RN, I treat myself to healthy doses of paint and paper…

God has Blessed me with over 1900 sales which have found their way around the world by way of eBay and nice people.
I work on watercolor paper, cardboard, wood, canvas, canvas board in acrylics, oils, pastels, and watercolors. Each painting on ETSY will have all the details. Usually Originals are offered yet prints may be added.

Any questions or just to chat-get in touch. Thanks, Mary Carol
