Mary Urban loves art and, when she isn't creating, you can find her immersed in her stacks of art history books. "I love to almost oversaturate myself with their inspiration. Then I close all the books and work on my own images."
Growing up in the idyllic Vermont countryside, Mary was encouraged by family and teachers to be an artist. At 18, she moved to Boston to study graphic design at the Massachusetts College of Art. The lure of her peaceful country home was too much and she returned to open an organic coffee and tea house with her brother. "Coffee, tea and cafe culture has always been a great passion to me, as it tends to bring communities and fellow artists together for conversations and the bouncing of bold ideas." Today, Mary is known for working in a variety of media and styles from illustrative to classic and more. Working outside surrounded by nature comes naturally, and she can often be found standing or sitting under a giant maple tree working on her next collection.
