Mary Swann is an outdoor painter who paints landscapes in York County, PA, in Maryland and Nova Scotia. A graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art, she was for many years represented in Baltimore by the former Paper Rock Scissors and the former Gomez Galleries. In 2001, she had the unforgettable pleasure of being Visiting Artist at MICA’s summer program in San Miguel de Allende. In 1996-97, she was among the first artists to work at Goya Girl Press whose prints were collected in a folio that became part of the permanent collection of the Baltimore Museum of Art.
Over the years, Mary has also created a large body of narrative quilts. More recently, she has illustrated three books: The Story of the Close Cat, a children’s book which she wrote, A Fearsome Day, a children’s storybook of Mary’s with illustrations of fabric images, and Call and Answer, a book of poems by Joyce S. Brown, which was published in October 2005.
