About the Artist​​

Photo: Artist Mary Collette

Mary Collette

My family and I have over the years travelled to different countries. During our travels, I have created works of art for schools, churches and social events.

I have always loved to paint and draw. While working in Charleston, I had the unique opportunity to spend my lunches watching the students at Gibbs Art School. Observing them helped me to further understand and appreciate art.

About two years ago, I attended an evening class on acrylic art. The instructor was Barbie Mathis at City Art and a member of Trenholm Art Guild. Through her encouragement, I have continued to paint. I also had the chance to meet Melony Stuckey (a member of the South Carolina Water Media Society) who provided instruction on improving my creations. I continue to experiment and grow as an artist. I love to paint realism of things that inspire me such as places we have been, events in our lives or just something that catches my eye.

I am a native of Massachusetts. We settled in Summerville in 2003, where my husband and I worked in Charleston for a number of years. Following retirement, we settled in Lexington in 2015. I joined CCAL in 2019 after attending Still Hopes Art exhibit.

In 2020, I entered an original painting winning first place. The painting, Durango Silverton River, was done in acrylics. This past year, I was honored to win first place in the jury show.
