ABOUT MARY
"Creating is my life's breath," states Crested Butte artist Mary Tuck. Mary worked in the advertising/graphic arts industry in corporations such as Fluor Engineering, Hughes Engineering, the Los Angeles Times and other smaller agencies and print houses before becoming a teacher. After 20 years she retired from Los Angeles Unified School District as an adult educator of Commercial Art, Graphic Design, Advertising, and Illustration, and made her home here in Crested Butte. Living in these beautiful mountains inspire Mary every day, and she loves to create in many mediums such as Silver Clay and beading, acrylics, water color, silk dyes, color pencils, pastels, and ink. "If it stands still I paint it," says Mary, working on many different surfaces such as River Rocks, wood, silk, walls, pottery, canvas and paper – all a challenge and a joy. That is why her work is so eclectic. She is a lifetime student of the arts, and also the theatre as an actress/singer/ director. She is always evolving and creating, as it keeps her looking forward to the future.
