Mary has an engineering and real estate background but photography has always been her creative outlet ever since she received her first camera as a child. She loves capturing beauty in all its forms whether it's in nature or abstract subjects. Mary's work has been displayed in cafes and art shows around the San Francisco Bay Area. Her most well-received work are flowers illuminated at night and abstract light "paintings". The light "paintings" are photographs taken with a long exposure with no "Photoshop-ing" done.
