About the artist Mary Wendel: "I am a native Texan from a small town in the hill country. I love how my life growing up far from the city has shaped my views on life and art now. I have always made art, it's jut part of my essence. I was lucky to have an amazing private art instructor as a kid who taught me everything I know about oil painting. I started with oils when I was 9 years old and never put it down. when I had my first show at 13 and sold a piece of artwork I knew this could be something great. From then on I tried to be as involved in the art world as possible, with competitions, shows and keeping busy with free lance work. Later after high school I became a hairstylist and makeup artist for about 4 years. Now I teach art and work in theatrical painting and design. when I'm not making art I'm found out riding my horse or swing dancing!" To see some of her work: http://www.marywendel.com/store/
