Mary Rapp

Artist Statement/Bio:

I HAVE LIVED IN WISCONSIN, NEW YORK, SOUTH CAROLINA AND RELOCATED TO NORTH CAROLINA IN FEB. 2016. RUNNING MY OWN BUSINESS FOR THE LAST 25 YEARS I WANTED SOMETHING TO TAKE ME OUT OF THE BUSINESS MODE. ABOUT 6 YEARS AGO I DECIDED TO TAKE A DRAWING CLASS OFFERED AT THE LOCAL ART CENTER. THAT STARTED MY NEW PASSION. I
HAD A WONDERFUL TALENTED TEACHER/ARTIST NAN LANGNER. SHE INTRODUCED ME TO ACRYLICS, PEN & INK DRAWING, WATERCOLOR, OIL,PASTELS, COLORED PENCIL AND ALCOHOL INK. I SERVED ON THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS FOR AIKEN ARTIST GUILD FOR SEVERAL YEARS.
I AM CURRENTLY TAKING CLASSES WITH LOCAL ARTIST BILLY FARMER.
PAINTING IS BETTER THAN PAYING A PSYCHIATRIST !!!!

About My Work:

AFTER WORKING WITH ALL THE DIFFERENT MEDIUMS, I LOVE THEM ALL EXCEPT OIL. I STAY AWAY FROM OILS -THAT IS PARTLY BECAUSE I AM NOT A PATIENT PERSON. MY SUBJECT DICTATES WHAT MEDIUM I WILL USE..
