Maryann's paintings have a realistic impression from a distance, but upon close examination, a viewer will see her love of the brushstroke. A vibrant palette is used in these intense expressions of strength in ordinary objects.
Maryann’s painting style employs an emphasis of shadows, building a dimensionality on her canvas. She prefers to work in a large format, compressing the space as she explores everyday objects that are often overlooked.
