Hello. I'm a Minnesota-based visual artist. 2004 University of Minnesota Art BA grad.

Painting and drawing are the foundation of my drive to work full-time as a a professional visual artist. Goal: To translate my evolving abstract aesthetic, ideas & process into further fine art & design. I look forward to re-imagining favorite themes in the coming year, resulting in new work and new directions.

Influenced by color and contrasts; architectural landscapes and the natural environment. Memories and dreams. My creative interests go beyond painting to include screen printing, fabric design, pattern, graphic design, & weaving. Screen prints based from drawings and collage are often integrated within my paintings. 

Corporate or local small biz fine art commissions/ fashion fabric collab's/ gallery exhibition opp's 2017, 2018/ licensing or retail opp's/ Work. I'm interested in what's next! Please email: maryo1485 {at} gmail.com
