Mary’s Gone Wild – Folk Art Extradonaire!

One of the stops on my Mr.Toad’s Wild ride with Miss Lynda was to Mary’s Folk Art and Doll Baby Museum in Holden Beach, NC. I’ve been to Miss Mary’s before and been just amazed . Who thinks of these things?? Mary paints on any surface she can find. People drop junk off at her home- literally- and she finds ways to create art from anything left on her door stop. As Mary tells it “God told me to start painting several years ago and I haven’t stopped since. ” She’s been published in serveral books, has her own website and a recent documentary film has been produced about her for Public TV.

I purchased a few pieces of Mary’s Wild Art for my shop within the shop at SeaSide Sisters. The pieces are “Mr and Mrs Moon” painted window, one of her wooden Crabs and of course, the two sided piece of art- titled ” Mermaid with bad hair day”. How could I not! Please visit her website http://marysgonewild.com/aboutthefilm.htm and stop by SeaSide Sisters to see Mary’s Wild creations.

Oh yes, the other piece of art available for your home is titled Heart Lipped Fish. You can’t miss her in the shop! Only from an artist like Mary could create such magic. Her parting words of wisdom to me when I was debating about buying this orginal art ” God’s love is not in a recession and money is all about the flow of life. So when you are trying to decide if you need a piece of Wild Mary Art- keep that in mind! “
These are pictures of all three pieces of art available at SeaSide Sisters as well as Mary and the rest of her art.
