The talented Mary Scrimgeour has joined the Inspired Art Project, and will be creating a piece using the poem “Becoming a Car” by Abraham C.

Mary became interested in art when she was about six years old. In addition to studying art in high school, she attended workshops and night classes in oil and illustration. She majored in fine arts at the University of Colorado and has taken numerous classes with prominent Colorado artists.

For many years Mary worked as an art director for several national magazines; during this time she continued her artwork independently. In 1985 she designed her own line of women’s clothing for her designer clothing store in Boulder, Colorado.

In 1990 she started her pursuit of painting full time. Her worldwide travels continue to enhance and nourish her work. Mary interprets the world by painting what she sees and feels. Her love of children, a sense of humour, and a compassion for people are some of the emotions she blends with her vision.
