Artist Statement

Mary Ahern at her painting easel

 In my painting studio I have a large oak easel to accommodate my large scale paintings. I keep my palette on the table next to me.

My art is driven by multiple passions.

As a classically trained Artist, the study of art history informs my work. The compositional framework on which I design my Art is from this lifelong study of the great old masters.

As an Artist and a passionate gardener with a degree in landscape design, I love to create art whether in a 3-dimensional garden or on a 2-dimensional canvas.

A critical component of my work and my life is ceaseless experimentation. With a low threshold for boredom, I enjoy creating in a broad range of mediums and processes, finding new methods to create my vision.

Combining my passions are the tools I use to create my realistic representational Art.
