About the Artist

With my move from an ultra urban setting to a pastoral river’s edge, my points of reference have changed. My recent works are studies of the nature that surrounds me.
I am an artist not a biologist. Art and nature are bound together in my work through the elements of line, form, pattern, texture, light and shadow. Aristotle said, “Art takes nature as its model”. My observations of nature happen within a small radius of my studio. I process what I see through drawing. I collect and press items. I record details that intrigue me. Focusing first on the smaller elements helps me to create a larger picture. In essence I am composing my personal river diary.

Mary Baranowski-Lowden has been working primarily in etching for over twenty years.

Wood Print Purchase Prize from Carleton University in Ottawa. She has done two artist’s residencies at the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica in Venice, Italy. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally most recently in Toronto, Portugal, England, Cuba, Australia, Scotland and Taiwan.
