Location Eagle, Idaho, United States
Introduction A native of Idaho, Mary Maxam finds inspiration for her paintings in the beautiful scenery and gardens of the Northwest. Her paintings are a response to familiar subjects, seen daily and discoveries that take place through the painting process. I search for the visual spark that I'll convey in the work. Then I look at the formal aspects of painting, composition, etc. Mary’s work has shown in many juried national exhibitions, including Oil Painters of America, the Midwest and National Watercolor Societies. She has won signature membership in the National, Northwest and Montana Watercolor Societies, and has contributed both paintings and written work for book and magazine articles on painting and design. Publications include "Watercolor Magic," "Gray's Sporting Journal" and "Paint Mixing, the 12-Hue Method" by Rockport Press.
