BIOGRAPHY

Exquisite evocations of the English countryside.

Created using a variety of media, Mary’s beautiful pieces have a delicate touch which is enchanting and inspiring art lovers across the world. Loosely- painted organic foregrounds contrast with areas of exquisitely detailed depictions of meadow flowers. Her use of diamond dust gives each painting an iridescent sparkle, adding a contemporary twist to otherwise traditional scenes.

Mary Shaw was born in Bristol, where she still resides and has her studio today. An entirely self- taught artist, she demonstrated an aptitude for painting from childhood, and completed her first commission at the age of just thirteen. As an adult, she spent four years living in Zimbabwe and Cape Town, where she began to establish herself as a professional artist.

 

On returning to the UK, Mary rediscovered her affection for the English countryside, having been struck by the vastly differing landscapes of her two homes. She was particularly interested in the rare and endangered species found amongst England’s hedgerows, and began to depict them in her paintings.

Mary has exhibited extensively throughout the UK since her return; her works met with great affection and collected by art lovers across the world- most notably the King of Qatar who was gifted a piece by his son Prince Abdullah Al Thani.

“Nature is always in my paintings. I love delicate flowers and grasses and am fascinated with movement – the sight of flowers an grasses blowing in the wind is truly beautiful.”
