About Me

Hi, I’m Mary Gwyn, (2 first names!). I’ve been painting since I was 8 years old. Before reaching my dream of a professional art education, I took a few side paths first to nursing school, then into Medical Sales, and on to a small business owner with an herb shop before circling back to art school. Through all of those fun things, I never quit painting. Now I wander around taking photos of birds to paint from, digging in my flower garden, teaching lots of fun botanical-style art workshops and, of course, painting. Art is my passion! I love writing about all things art! Church is a big part of my life. When I’m not at church services and functions or with my wonderful circle of friends, I’m painting the beauty of God’s creation and sharing through writing and teaching lots of fun art stuff! Join me for the fun! I’d love to hear from you!
