Thank you Mary, for sharing your art with us at the library during the month of May!
Meet Mary McRae
I’ve long considered myself a skilled craftsperson; an artisan. Over the years I’ve painted primitive landscapes and house portraits, stitched fiber art, knit intricate lace pattern work, and have recently turned my attention to digital illustration. Armed with an iPad, an iPencil, and the Procreate app, I create illustrations of my local surroundings, of interesting people, flora and fauna, and my favorite: the buildings – churches, schools, libraries, landmarks, homes, barns, and cottages – that catch my eye. Since relocating from Vermont to the Maine Coast two years ago – a move over 30 years in the making! – I’ve been capturing the essence of this place; from the town wharfs with their lobster traps piled high and boats in the distance, and the blueberry barrens, to our little farm stands, farmers’ markets, and the buildings where our community gathers – the place I can finally call home.
Mary is donating 40% of her sales to the library. Thank you!
