The Artist Says:

Both acrylic and ink painting, along with hand sculpting pottery, is what makes me "me".  I put my heart and soul into each piece -- My emotions and interests seem to evolve with each piece of art.  No two are the same.  And, that is one of the reasons I love creating.


Mary T Barton has been working with ceramics/pottery and painting for most of her life.
She discovered her love of art at an early age.  Both her grandmothers, her mother, and her sister were born to be artists.  Mary began studying art formally when she returned to school after "growing up".   She went on to achieve her BFA in Fine Arts at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas.
She and husband, Jon, live in the beautiful hill country of Texas, and have two amazing grown sons.  Mary works at her home studio, and displays her works at local area galleries.
"Art has always been my therapy.  Whether working through difficulties, or celebrating accomplishments... it has to remain the balance in my life.  The motion and progression that each piece of art produces, as it's being produced, is a catalyst to maintaining my sanity.  Simply put, without art -- I most likely would go crazy!"
