Mary Henderson is a talented and prolific watercolor artist who lives
and works in Saint Petersburg, Florida. She studied fine art at the
Saginaw Institute of Art for three years, where she enjoyed working
directly with artists who explored different mediums such as metal
sculpture, oil and charcoal. Proficient in multiple media, Mary's
favorite medium to work with is watercolor. She has been inspired by
artists such as Claude Monet and Georgia O'Keeffe, whose influences can
be seen in her work. Her light and airy paintings pay homage to Monet,
while her close up and vibrant work is reminiscent of O'Keeffe. Mary
spent eight years participating in juried shows throughout the State of
Florida, where she received several awards. Her artwork has been
exhibited in galleries both in Florida and nationally. Mary has been
painting and teaching painting for the past 31 years.
