About the Artist

A lifelong Tallahasseean, Mary Liz graduated from Florida State with a BS in Visual Art. She's worked in wood, clay, metal, fabrics, printmaking, drawing and painting on surfaces and objects. While enjoying personal work in illustration, lettering and calligraphy, she's employed by Kidd Group since 1987, as Studio Director/print.


Artist's Statement

I find any creative process to be the ultimate excitement. I enjoy deeply creating situation scenes from my imagination while embracing "happy accidents.” I mostly work in watermedia, but also create three dimensional works with muslin. I enjoy using animals as subjects, using humor and whimsy to amuse or satirize.
