An example of fine art by Maryjo Querry

I find inspiration in all things “antique” and find joy in painting objects that bring back a special memory and strike an emotional note with the viewer.  I like to think I’m telling my story through my brushes and the viewer puts the period at the end of the sentence.
My goal is to paint from my heart and touch people through passion and sensitivity in my paintings.  If a painting speaks to someone, I have accomplished what I set out to do in my art.
I found my artistic voice later in life and my hope is that others will be encouraged to follow their passion, regardless of the point they are in their life's journey.
Mary Jo developed her artistic voice through local southern California community college classes.  Her instructor, seeing her passion and desire, encouraged her and continues to mentor her.  Studying the works of contemporary artists David Leffel, Sherrie McGraw, Daniel Keys and Jackie Kamin has given Mary Jo the tools she needs to create a style of work that is sensitive and has the ability to connect with the viewer.
Her work hangs in collections throughout the US, Germany and Australia.  She has won numerous awards locally.
Her work can be viewed in person at The Cottage Gallery on Los Rios Street in San Juan Capistrano, CA, San Clemente Art Gallery, San Clemente, CA and on her website at: www.mjquerryfineart.com.
