Mary Stuart is a new and emerging artist from North Vancouver, British Columbia. Her passion is the creation of contemporary and abstract works of art. She paints with oils in vivid colours, using brushes, palette knives, rags and her fingers to create different textures and designs. Molding pastes are also used to create varied textures. The combination of these different mediums, over numerous layers, creates depth and an intensity that seems to move in the changing light producing a different perspective from every angle. Mary began her career as an avid entrepreneur, creating a successful landscape design and horticulture business based in Vancouver’s North Shore as well as designing and creating children’s apparel which sold exclusively at North Shore’s Lonsdale Quay Market. Mary is now devoted to her career as a full time artist, with painting, staging of home décor, and numerous other creative ventures.
