A native of Colombia, Lucy grew up enjoying the mountains, the forest and
the tropical beaches where she found a great appreciation for nature. In
high school she was interested in many forms of art and later, when she
received a degree in Architecture, her passion for art focused on oil
painting. After graduating, she has attended private classes with different
teachers and also participated in workshops to improve her skills.
Lucy's work is very diverse, richly colored with a wide variety of subjects
and has been sold in Colombia, Canada and USA.
Now, living in Canada, she finds inspiration in the endless wonder of the
seasons and the beautiful scenery that Canada has to offer.
Mary began her journey as a Canadian artist when she arrived in Toronto from
her hometown in Italy at age six.
Her passion for drawing and painting surfaced at an early age and she
excelled in high school art classes.
Often her work reflects an outpouring of her heart onto the canvas. Mary
has been featured in newspapers and magazine articles on her Alzheimer
painting "Forget Not" created from the sorrow of watching her father suffer
from the disease. The Alzheimer Society used this inspirational piece to
bring awareness to this dreadful disease.
Mary paints a variety of subjects and mediums which she shares with the
world in Mariellart Gallery.
