Mary started making art as a child, and her mother was always very supportive and encouraging of her interest in art. The painter who fascinated her the most was Vincent Van Gogh. She let herself be absorbed in the process of art and painted as much as possible. In 2010, a jury selected her sculpture proposal for Wings in the City – a project to raise funds for the Jennifer and Jim Koman Expressive Therapy Program at Wings, a local pediatric hospice and palliative care program. Her 5' X 4' fiberglass butterfly sculpture is entitled Journey. It is embellished with metallic acrylics and maps. The art project raised $1.3 million dollars for Wings. All of Mary's art is inspired by nature. In 2007 she lived in the southwest, examining desert landscapes.

The dramatic volcanic landscapes continue to inform and influence her work.
