Mary Elizabeth Duggan, SCA

is a landscape painter. She considers her style to be ‘Graphic Post-Impressionism’ although she relies more on her plein air sketches than photo references. Her sense of form and colour is influenced by the many years she spent as a professional graphic designer. Often, she uses shaped spaces including her choice of format to symbolically represent some element she considers to be vital to her interpretation of her subject.

Since 2005, the focus of her art has been the impact had by natural and human forces on the exposed rock surfaces and in the reveal of rock faces within her subject area, the Transition Zone which edges the Canadian Shield in Ontario.

Born and raised in Toronto, she graduated (1973) from the full-time, three-year Special Art 3 at Central Technical School having garnered the 1972 Julius Griffiths Art Bursary. Her art has been included in numerous open-juried shows, is represented in private collections across Canada and within several American states and has received several awards.

She is an Elected Member of the Colour & Form Society as well as a SCA Director.
