Biography


Mary Williams considers  herself a relatively new and "evolving" artist.  Her focus for creating art is in her words "to have fun with it".  In each piece of art she strives to reflect the joy she finds in the act of creation.  
 
Mary finds gratification in continuous learning through reading, videos, workshops, classes and trying new and different techniques.  Mary completed a successful career as as a mechanical engineer working in the aerospace and oilfield sectors.  At it's root, the word engineer  is derived from the Latin words ingeniare ("to create, generate, contrive, devise") and ingenium ("cleverness") and these fit Mary perfectly in her artistic approach.  After retiring she decided to try art based on the artistic talents displayed by her sister and aunt.  After initially focusing on watercolor, Mary found enjoyment in exploring other media including pastel and acrylic.  She loves to continually try new things.  This is evident not only in the diversity of her art but also the fact that she has won awards using three different media in four different categories.
 
Mary resides with her husband, Mark, and pets in Conroe, TX.
