ABOUT THE ARTIST

Work

Mary Made is a multi-talented artist that focuses on expressing emotions to people through her artwork.  Vibrant, colorful, and full of texture describes best her paintings.  Mary’s work, that combines realism and abstraction, fascinates her audience with a style that is uniquely her own.  Some of her paintings are vivid journeys to other dimensions that invite to consider influences of powers greater than our own.  Mary has been regularly participating in exhibitions in Brussels where she also lives and works.

Techniques

Expressing herself through oil, watercolour, acrylic, pastel, glazing, gilding and mixed media, Mary uses a variety of materials and techniques in her work.  She studied at several academies, honing her artistic skills through teachings from prominent artists such as Roland Palmaerts, Odette Feller, Cao-Bei An, Pierre Sentjens, Victoria Calleja and Madeleine Lejeune to name a few.
