Mary Mellen is an acrylic painter who comes from a long line of artists. However, she did not discover her passion for painting until 2001 when she came across her grandmother’s 105-year-old sketch book and found that they shared a similar subject matter.
Mary has been deeply inspired by her extraordinary artistic connection with her grandmother, making painting even more a source of personal fulfillment and one of her greatest joys.
Her subject matter is primarily still life, landscapes, and impressionism; and she enjoys using a warm fusion of soft luminous old world colors.
