Mary Sanders is a contemporary abstract painter, whose inspired by the atmosphere and features of rugged landscapes; in particular the fells of the Lake District where she lives and works. It’s the emotional response and memory of place which ignites her paintings.
Mary’s work reflects an interest in: colour, texture, movement and mark making. Her practice mainly utilises acrylics and mixed media but experimentation with techiques and materials is fundamental to her art. Her process begins by immersing herself in the landscape and responding with sketches fuelled by a multi-sensory approach.
