// Statement
Art is a way of expressing my inner feelings and spirit. I look for subjects that move and connect with me visually, translating the ordinary into a moving experience. By using a pastel stick or a loaded brush of oil paint, I design and create 2-dimensional paintings that are intimate and emotional.  
 
Bio
MaryAnn Cleary, a native Montanan and accomplished Chemical Engineer, has woven her love of fine art into every aspect of her life.  As a well-seasoned global traveler, MaryAnn has lived throughout the American West, overseas on assignment in Suzhou, China, and has finally found her heart along the Rum River where she enjoys a lazy view of the riverside near Cambridge, MN.  MaryAnn has always balanced her loves of both art and science, finding inspiration and relief in the study of fine art.  With a backbone built on the basics of drawing and color, MaryAnn delights in plein air or on-site painting because it helps fund her wanderlust and creative time in her riverside studio.
 
As a member of the American Women Artist group, she is thrilled to have one of her recent paintings accepted into the first of the 25 Museum Exhibitions in 25 Years sponsored by AWA. The exhibition, “Under a Vast Sky”, was shown at the Tucson Desert Art Museum in Tucson, Arizona.
