Mary Ann Slater is an acrylic realism artist based in Toronto, Ontario. Mary Ann is a self-taught artist, with experience in illustration, painting and graphite renderings. Over the past three years, she has developed her love of art into a career, focusing on realism painting with acrylics. She has shown her work in many Toronto exhibitions, and is currently showing a selection of work at the Blue Crow Gallery in Toronto.
Mary Ann’s work begins with finding the object, in attics, yard sales and long forgotten basement shelves. She then paints with tiny brushes, layered paint and vivid colours to capture the unique character of that item. She focuses on the simplicity of that piece, letting it tell its own story. Mary Ann invites you to enjoy the stories that you find, and hopes that you remember to slow down and enjoy the simple things in life.
