Mary Scobie

Born in Scotland, Mary grew up in Montreal, Quebec and Sackville, New Brunswick. She received a Diploma in Graphic Design from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax, and a Bachelor of Music degree from Mount Allison University, Sackville. She moved to the west coast in 1992 and lives and paints outside of Victoria, British Columbia. Her paintings and drawings have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in New Brunswick and British Columbia and her works can be found in private collections in Canada, Scotland and the United States. I like painting people or places to which I feel a strong connection and I enjoy interpreting reality from my particular viewpoint. When I paint I like to capture the essence of a subject and explore the interplay of pattern, light and shape. Fascinated by faces and people, I like to capture how personality and character are revealed through a pose, body language, and interaction. The contrast of sun and shadow, the play of light on shapes, and the transforming quality of light are important in my work.
