Having focused on the studies of fine art in grade school through college including attending MICA and Hunter College, Mary Mattei has pursued art making throughout her life. Currently painting in oils with cold wax her paintings have rich textural surfaces. She resides in Boston.

“My paintings do not copy nature as much as emanate organically to singularly express it. The pictorial images derive from an abiding practice of being closely observant of natural landscape. The heavily textured and patterned surfaces are built up with many layers of paint, as well as incised and scraped away.”
