Mary DeLave Art Mary DeLave Art


Mary DeLave had the opportunity to live a creative life starting in childhood with a great deal of freedom to explore her own interests at a young age. She was also able to go to an alternative high school which continued to allow her freedom to explore. She graduated from Washington University in St Louis Mo. with a Major in Architecture which taught her to think outside the box.

The overall focus of Mary's paintings are about the interactions of people and critters and often explore how relationships are multifaceted and richly layered. She enjoys capturing magical moments that represent our connection with nature and  the interconnections of life.

Mary's compositions invite the viewer to see from different perspectives and look beyond the ordinary.
