Mary Jo Nelson, Mixed
Media / Oils
At a very early age Mary Jo was recognized by her teachers
for her artistic abilities and put in special classes in Junion High and High
School, but it wasnít until taking classes in life drawing and painting at
Michigan State University that she began her journey in art. After graduation
she not only kept up with painting and life drawing but also picked up hand
building pottery. On a consistent basis she worked during her 20ís & 30ís but
then lifeís challenges took priority until about 2 years ago when she was able
to resume painting.
Itís been a challenge, a feeling of accomplishment, and a
pleasure to come back to the art world. What I want is for the viewer to see
some depth, feel the color and movementÖand gain an experience. I hope you see
new things again & again.
