About Maryann 


A native of Chicago, MaryAnn is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). She majored, and worked, in animation until computers reshaped the industry, at which time she opted to remain a hands-on creative artist.

Her new career turned to mural designs, a medium that well allowed her to express her creativity. Working with clients, and designers, she developed a loyal following in the New York Tri-State area.

However, her true longing is to paint, paint on canvas, commit to a toile what she sees, feels, visualizes... that only she can transpose to a canvas in her own style. This she has now been doing since 2005. Creating beautiful renderings of nature, cities, people, pets, but mostly, the ever-changing, ever evolving, charm of the Berkshires, from her studio on Lake Ashmere, MA.

Her debut in the genre has been well received indeed. In 2006, her "Winter Birches" were selected by AARP in a Nationwide contest to grace their Annual Calendar distributed to some 600,000 sponsors. It was again selected to be their Annual Holiday Card.

Her first opening was in Westport in 2006. In 2007, she participated in a juried show in New Haven where she received another award. She has been featured in magazines and newspapers, as well as 8 different galleries in 2007 alone. MaryAnn also works on private commissions of paintings, and murals.
