Equal parts artist/scientist/explorer, curiosity led me to an art habit & PhD.

I create fine art, portraits, learning experiences and retreats.

Organic Abstractions

What if you could dream while you are awake?

Playing out in colourful, organic forms, this collection bridges the physical and metaphysical, inspired by the surreal, intricate nature of existence. Each is infused with organic beauty and vibrant colours that echo joy, love, playfulness and the mystery of life. 


Abstract


Soul Essence Portraits

Custom creations that represent the authentic self, beyond what is 'skin-deep.' 

    As Mary comes to know people, they appear to her as arrays of images, colours, shapes and textures. Embracing this unusual gift, which she likens to a sort of synaesthesia, she started to paint these visualizations as commissioned portraits.

Based on profound feedback from her clients, it soon became clear that these portraits often depict what is hidden or unrealized, illuminating the truth of a person, or what is most essential about them on the deepest level, beyond what is held in belief or Ego. She thus began to call these works “Soul Essence Portraits.”

    The experience of having one's portrait done can be a deep and revealing journey, which begins before brush even touches canvas.  

    Seeing the beauty and creativity in one's true self can be a very liberating and expansive process for many. The act of simply being seen and heard is often a profoundly healing gift for clients. 

While the hustle & bustle of life happens, my Soul Essence Portrait is the reminder of who I really am & helps me stay balanced & grounded. I didn’t realize the painting would have such a drastic positive impact on my daily life. I highly recommend Mary’s Soul Essence Portraits to anyone seeking their own truth or gifting it to a loved one.

Cellular Landscapes

I spent more than a decade training as a scientist. While conducting laboratory research in molecular cell biology, genetics, developmental biology, cancer, autism and neuroscience, I captured beautiful images of cells and sub-cellular structures using powerful confocal microscopes. This collection presents some of that work.
