Brilliantly colourful, and yet airy--- images of our beautiful world painted in oils, water colours and acrylics by local artist Mary Morganelli can be viewed at Matthew's House Hospice, Lower East Wall.
Mary's love and passion for mixed media arts surfaced in high school where she nurtured and developed her artistic expression through classes and private lessons. Marriage to her high school sweetheart and motherhood had her refocus her energies and attentions to raise her young family for a number of years. Since 2010, Mary has immersed herself in her art with passion and an indomitable spirit, producing numerous paintings on a variety of subjects and experimenting with various mediums – a collection she shares through her dedicated website, Mariellart Gallery.
Mary's portfolio currently includes detailed portraits, beautiful landscapes and flowers, animals, birds, still life, children and more. "I like to tell a story with my paintings," explained Mary. "Many of my pieces offer glimpses of peace, serenity, relaxation, inspiration, life purpose and deeper meaning. Then again, some of my pieces are just done for fun!"
Mary's ultimate desire is for her creative gift to touch lives, bring light and joy, a smile to your face and beauty to your eyes. You can find her work at her website, mariellart.com.
