The nature-inspired paintings of artist Mary E. O’Connell, are reminiscent of the quaint farms, and back country rambles of her native Massachusetts. Working mainly in acrylics provides her the perfect medium to experiment with glazes, textures, and color to achieve a realistic life-like appearance in her landscapes, still lifes, and florals.
“I like to think my art has a spiritual component to it, revealing the wonder and emotion that impresses me when I’m alone, awestruck by the natural environment. I strive to communicate what I’m feeling, the essence of the moment, or the mysteries of living things.”
Mary earned a bachelor’s degree in fine art from Northeastern University, having previously studied studio art at Massachusetts College of Art & Design, the DeCordova Museum School, and most recently at the Emerson Umbrella for the Arts in Concord, Massachusetts. She is self-taught in furniture faux finishing.
