Mary Ahern, the Northport Artist, has created an Art Form combining the plants with roots in her garden, the pixels in her digital paintings and her breadth of traditional classical painting techniques. With degrees in both Fine Arts and Horticulture, Ahern combines these fields to produce the large-scale, brilliantly colored paintings, which have become her trademark.
On display will be a succession of her Flower and Garden inspired Art stretching from needlepoint, graphite, watercolor, and oil paintings to her digital mixed-media paintings covering decades of experimenting and creativity.
As a classically trained oil and watercolor painter, Ahern utilizes these very same painting skills when working with her digital paintbrushes. The style of her painting transcends the medium she chooses to create each of her Fine Art Paintings.
Mary Ahern of Northport NY is a widely collected Artist who regularly hosts her own Studio Tours and Garden Tours. She is an accomplished speaker & has frequently served on panels and forums regarding such diverse topics as gardening, art, business, marketing & social networking.
