Mary Sneed started drawing professionally after the birth of her first child 37 years ago. Mary sharpened her skills while under the tutelage of many accomplished artists including Oscar Sormani of Omaha for 8 years learning color and landscapes. While living in Kansas she studied under Harry Freidman and Daniel Greene (Master Pastelist). Mary has also studied under Richard Whitney of New Hampshire and Bob Gerbracht of California.
Mary considers herself a realist, but she also creates in both impressionist and abstract styles. She works in all mediums from oils, watercolor, colored pencils, and black and while (pencil and charcoal). Her love of children and people are a natural fit with her talent for portraiture; working from both photographs and live sittings. Mary also enjoys sports art, landscapes, and wildlife. Mary has had many published prints. One with Mickey Mantle of the New York Yankees in 1988, Adam Oats of the St. Louis Blues Hockey team in 1992, and Tom Osborne, National Champion Print in 1994.
Mary has 12 children and enjoys living on a small farm in Malvern, Iowa; just 30 minutes from Omaha, Ne. In addition to being a Fine Artist, Mary is also an accomplished framer, providing custom framing services for the past seven years.
