Artist Statement:

Mary Ann Slater is an acrylic realism artist based in Toronto, Ontario. Mary is a self-taught artist, and over the past three years she has developed her love of art into a career, focusing on realism painting with acrylics. Her take on contemporary still life brings ordinary items to the canvas in a way that evokes memory and emotion.

Each of Mary’s paintings begins with an item that captures her attention. She then paints with tiny brushes, layered paint and vivid colours to capture the unique character in the object. Mary’s attention to fine detail, reminds us that even the ordinary can be beautiful.
