Mary simpson


About the Artist

Mary specializes in seacapes, landcapes, florals, and animals. Her style is realistic and decidedly contemporary. The elements of concern are in great detail, striking a chord of compassion and believabilitly, while being framed with impressionistic qualities that delight the imagination.

Since Mary began teaching oil painting 35 years ago in Long Beach, Ca., she developed quite a following throughtout Southern California. Her students are always amazed at what she can get out of them for the first and subsequent paintings. Her method includes drying time between manageable segments, thereby supporting major progress, and preventing catastrophe by a novice. She also teaches advanced courses, including design and composition.

Mary is currently teaching at her studio in Ridgecrest, Ca.
