|Mary Dunn, born in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania in 1952, and has been living all her life around the suburb of West Mifflin, not far from the big city. As with many artists, she was drawing and oil painting most of her life. Her love for art never ceases and through the years, it has become a way of expression and relaxation.
Mostly self taught, Mary Dunn has worked primarily in oils; however, recently she has been working in pastels, acrylics, and watercolors.
While in college, Mary minored in art. Although she would have loved to have been an art major, at that time, she was a single parent and felt it necessary to major in business to take care of her two daughters. After college, she could not devote time to her art work, but now that her children have grown, there is more time to create and enjoy painting.
Mary works full time as a project manager but her evenings are spent either at the canvas or reading about various artist techniques. “It is a wonderful feeling to be creative in a way that people enjoy and appreciate. When my work is displayed, whether it is a pet portrait, a landscape, or a floral, the satisfaction of being the creator of an image brings such joy to my life.”
As an emerging artist, Mary’s exhibitions have included The Jewish Community Center (Mt. Lebanon, PA), The Galaxie (Chicago, Illinois) and the Iris and Ivory Tea Room (Emerling Plaza, Indianola, PA). Her artwork has been featured on “Infuze”, a website magazine, as well as “Art Bistro”. Currently, her artwork hangs at the “Extreme Art Explosion Gallery” in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Mary holds a B.S. Degree in Business Management and a Masters Degree in Public Management. She is also a member of the Pittsburgh Pastel Artists League where she is the Secretary and is responsible for the monthly newsletter.
