Mary Sweet


Mary has been a painter all her life, in watercolor and acrylics, and a woodblock printer since 1993. Landscape is her main interest. 


Artist Statement

The landscape has always been my primary inspiration. As a child I spent summers on my grandparents’ farm and treasured those days. I went hiking and camping as a Girl Scout. I always loved mountains, first Ohio’s gentle hills and then the grandeur of the Rockies and the West. When still a teen-ager I discovered the pull of the canyons and deserts and learned to love the wild places where there is time to see and hear and think.


The land provides us with everything from sustenance to solace and yet we as a modern urban society have nearly lost our connections to it and nature. We treat neither with respect.

My paintings are my way of saying this is what I saw and it is important and I want you to see it too.

My media are acrylic, monotype, watercolor, handmade artists books and woodblock prints done Japanese style with watercolor.

Mary’s beautiful painting “Margerie Glacier” (above) will be in this years Western Fed in Boise, Idaho.
