Mary states "The line of distance between my process in theater and painting are one and the same. My tools interchange."  Mary’s work has been exhibited at Restoration Skylight Gallery; Dorsey's Gallery; MoCADA; Corridor Gallery; Rush Arts; Robert Lehman Gallery at Urban Glass; Tabla Rasa and various galleries, museums, and cultural centers throughout the tristate area, Massachusetts, California and Brazil. 

"Abstraction, What do I have here? I use the freedom from representational qualities and allow myself to draw within and connect  to the subconscious. In this practice the work evolves into a visual form.  Each work appears complete. I am thinking these are sections of the infinite picture and these sections are processed through the state of abstracting from within."
