Mary lives in San Francisco with her husband, daughter, cat and rabbit. Her education has alternated between art and academics (one undergraduate degree in each, one Masters in each). She is an avid traveler who pursues an extensive array of interests and studies which inform and feed her artwork. Her first publicly displayed commission was done at the age of 16 and her work has been shown all over the United States and outside of it.
In May of 2017 she became disabled with CFS/ME. After an adjustment period she has continued her work with the help of assistants.
