"Inspired to paint figures at work"
Mary’s work has been recognised in the East Anglia area for over 25 years, particularly for her paintings of children on the beach and the Suffolk coastline.
She owned The Garden Gallery in Southwold from 1998-2005 and ran The Little Gallery in Halesworth with her partner Colin Huggins from 2008-2015.
In recent years she has broadened her approach and referred to the work of Harry Becker and many of the more impressionist artists. This has led to her current interest in figures at work – in particular local fishermen.
