Mary Vollero

Artist Statement

While I am in the process of painting, memories and stories begin to surface. It is during this time, while I am working, that I discover why I was compelled to paint the image, and what is most important for me to share with others. In this way the paintings provide an opportunity for me to communicate with others, not only about the animals, but also about some of the joys and struggles in our seen and unseen worlds.
