Mary Jo Nelson, Mixed Media / Oils
mjevergreen@yahoo.com

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.
