“How do I know when a painting is done? I don’t. I just have to stop.”
Mary Parkman is originally from Cleveland Ohio. Later she lived in New York City where she showed extensively. Her travels to Italy, Maine and Naples serve as the subject of many of her landscape paintings. Often painting her landscapes ‘en plein air’ she finds she is able to capture real light and space by being physically in the landscape.
Having received her BFA from Cornell University, she continued her studies at The New York Studio School, the Art Students League and the International School of Art in Umbria, Italy. She teaches in Naples and continues to show in Italy, New York, Atlanta, Boston, Cleveland, Naples, and Amelia Island.
