Mary Stevenson is a textile, mixed media artist from St. Joseph Island. She started her creative journey over 30 years ago designing a line of clothing, some may remember, called Island Comforts.
Over the years, Mary has transitioned her love of textile into a unique artistic expression, creating fine art in the form of collage using hand dyed fabrics, bits of recycled fabrics, acrylic paint and mediums. She is drawn to the vibrant colours seen in nature.
Mary says: My life, like my art, has been constantly changing and full of colourful texture and Joy! There is no lack of inspiration in the ever-changing beauty of this Algoma Great Lake region and the islands and coastal landscapes I have been blessed to live in.
Mary's mixed media work includes colourful textile collage, as well as wool, silk and fibre felt and stitch paintings.
