Biography

Mary is a Natimuk artist who works with community groups across Victoria and further afield, to explore light, shadow and puppetry, often in collaboration with other artists. In 2013 she studied at the Theatre of Light and Shadow in Germany under the guidance of Norbert Gotz.

Living at the foot of Mount Arapiles, Mary has a keen interest in the environment and many of her projects include explorations of biodiversity.

Mary also makes furniture and smaller objects utilising recycled paper. Most of her sculptural pieces depict real and imagined fantastical creatures and reflect her background in graphic design.
