Crows gather all kinds of things in their nests. They like shiny objects or whatever strikes their fancy. I, too, like to gather a variety of things, but unlike a crow, I like to share what I find, as well as what I create myself.
Mary Ann Wakeley is a self-taught, American mixed media artist/painter working full time since 2001. Her work is an inner adventure - with each painting she leaves this physical world and explore “places” that are based on feelings. “Each painting is a conversation with my true self. It is a meditation; a place of honest communication. The painting is the physical expression of the experience.” Her sources of inspiration? “Harmony, nature, music, beautiful things. I am constantly working on myself, to see the best in everything around me and focus on the peace that exists inside. It is the only solution if we are ever going to experience peace in the world. Art has the power to do this.” (interview with artist by ARTchipel Aug-2011)
