Mary Doane – Crossroad Artists

Mary’s work is inspired by the everyday things around her, quite often still-life representations of familiar or found objects.Mary uses transparent watercolour to render her pieces in a realistic style.

Originally from Nova Scotia, Mary lived in Quebec City for 37 years. It was during her training in interior decoration that she first used watercolour as a medium to render perspective drawings. Mary is inspired by everyday items. She explains, “I do tend to collect lots of odds and ends and the tables in our home are inhabited by all manner of knick-knacks. I suppose some would call it clutter but I have the excuse of calling it inspiration!” Mary is a signature member of the Quebec-based Institut des Arts Figuratifs (IAF) and of the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolor (CSPWP). She is represented by 14 Bells Fine Art Gallery in Halifax.
