Demo Artist
The WVAG is pleased to welcome Mary Neville as its June 4, 2019 Demo Artist.

Mary Neville is a Southern California native whose work is inspired by the colors, light and open spaces of the West Coast.

She paints intuitively, while also considering the balance between emotion and the fundamentals of structure and form.

“It is in this process that I explore the concept of how all we may all hold on to inner emotional or physical memories for so long that it becomes ‘our story.’

I create paintings under paintings, adding to, and then wiping away images so that just a trace remains.

Every finished piece is a complex visual weave that brings into balance a history of various feelings and emotions.”

Mary is a member of the Ojai Studio Artist Association and often participates in the Ojai Studio Tours
Greatly affected by the 2018 Thomas Fire, Mary’s paintings became more subdued.  The bright colors were replaced with shades of gray and black with only hints of color. After a year of working with this palate, her recent work reflects a new period of transition, of gradually bringing back color.  These works provide “a visual timeline of restoring emotional balance.”

Educated at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, Mary spent many years in various creative environments, including fashion, interior design and architecture. She utilizes a variety of mediums including acrylic paint, paper, pencil, chalk, and oil pastels.
