b.1988, Lives and works in London

Often responding to place and landscape, Mary’s work is an intuitive exploration of memory and sensation. Working at the intersection of drawing, painting and printmaking, she creates subtle and enigmatic works which oscillate between the recognised and the unknown.

Mary studied art at Goldsmiths College in London, where she developed a fascination with the materiality of the photographic image and it’s unreliability as a container of memory, and later at the Royal Drawing School where she re-connected with the physical and unconscious aspects of image making through observational drawing.
