Welcome to the art, writings and occasional vintage find by Mary Blocksma of Bay City, Michigan. I have been a self-supporting artist and writer for over thirty years, author of over forty books by a large variety of publishers, large and small. Although I'm professionally a writer, in recently years I have been illustrating my own work and producing art mostly focused on the Great Lakes and nature. Any printed material not printed on my equipment—books and posters and some note cards—are my work entirely, commercially printed by Holland Litho in Holland, Michigan.

In 2014 I am working on a book about my experience rescuing my wonderful Min Pin, Gracie, as well as trying to loosen up my painting style by using pastels which reflect so much body language and resist tight details. Google Mary Blocksma to find my website where there is a more complete resume, sign-up for my newsletter, and information on my latest available work.
