Artist's Statement:

What we discover when we go inward is our poetic response to life. Art connects us to our Source. It connects us with each other, with generations past, and with those who will see our paintings long after we are gone. When I paint, I truly feel the great relations among all things. Every subject becomes a metaphor. I forget to breathe. I will never lose sight of what a joy and privilege it is to be a painter.
–Mary Pettis
