About

Mary Conley
 I have had a lifelong passion for art . I trained at the Honolulu Academy, the Vancouver Art School, and the Bank Street School of Art in Victoria. Some might say I'm a workshop junkie, having taken classes in sculpture, batik, copper enameling, airbrush, watercolour, calligraphy, oil painting and pastel. I love to paint and draw, make pop-up books and paper mache' sculpture. I've selected some of my work for your perusal.
My most recent project is a book called Artistry of Art Deco :An illustrated selection of buildings in Greater Victoria. There will be a book launch at the Cedar Hill Rec Centre Gallery from December 18 to January 2. Meet the artist on Saturday, December 22 from 2-4 pm. The book and illustrations will be for sale. I will also sell the book for $30 through my website.  Please send me your email address for a response. The book is now available at Ivy's Bookstore, Monro's Bookstore, The Art Gallery of Greater Victoria and Tanner's in Sidney.
I hope you enjoy seeing my creations as much as I enjoyed making them.

My husband, David Gray, is a professional sculptor and helped me make some of the bigger sculptures,  Buttercup, the cow and Tweedledee and Tweedledee, which sits in our front hall. We live in Victoria, beautiful British Columbia , Canada.
