Mary Alice Black



Meet the Artist, Mary Alice Black

Mary Alice grew up in rural Arkansas on a farm which brought an appreciation of nature to her.   Although she took one drawing class at a junior college in Bakersfield, California, she is actually self-taught and didn’t start painting until she came back to Arkansas and started painting her husband’s wood carvings.  She then took a class in acrylics in Hot Springs and her medium became acrylic.  Each piece of her art tells a story…with an emotional journey in which you can become lost.
