MARY CARLSON – born 1951 and started painting seriously in the early 1980’s. Mary is self taught and her work conveys a true naive charm. Works in the 1980’s mainly featured decorative interiors with an emphasis on fabric designs and colour combinations. For nearly twenty years her output was, in her own words, prolific. More than 500 upscale oil on canvas works were completed in this period, the majority sold and now hang in homes throughout East Anglia and London.
Various commitments resulted in a halt to her painting and, sadly, for over ten years nothing was produced. In 2011 Mary returned to her studio and easel with gusto! A canine theme has taken hold, quirky endearing hounds in vibrant settings from Venice to a sofa near you! Red Dot Gallery presents the work in appropriately colourful frames that complement these joyful paintings
