Cornerstone’s Artist of the Month for March 2020

Below is a recent Q&A with Mary Ann Byrne-Walker.

Tell us briefly about your background & how you got started in your medium.
Although my education and career is in the medical field I have painted my whole life. Oils were only in the last 10 years. I actually use Watersoluble Oils now. I got started with them because of travel and painting plein air. I haven’t gone back to traditional oils since.

How does your medium inform your viewpoint? Or what do you like most about your medium?
I like that my medium can be as thin as watercolor or applied thick. I like the ease of its use and that there are less chemicals.

Who or what have been your artistic inspirations?
Travel scenery, hiking views, rocks and water.

Do you have a favorite piece in your portfolio?
Anything with water and rocks.

What would be your advice to artists just starting out in your medium?
As Nike would say…Just do it!
