Mary Jane Cooke, Painter
Mary Jane, retired Connecticut School Library Specialist, moved to Sedona with her husband Ray and immediately indulged in the pursuit of Watercolor adventures.
Attending Yavapai College watercolor classes for basics and intermediate skills review she attended many workshops offered by NAWS and SAC.
She has been juried in to NAWS and SAC shows over the past 5 years and recieved awards from both organizations for her bright, cheerful, capturings of nature’s beauty in landscapes and floral arrangements. Many of her paintings were initially partially painted `en pleine air` during her travels all over the world with her husband and finished “in studio” upon return. “Watercolor painting has been one of my life’s greatest challenging adventures and it never ceases to boggle my mind when I complete a successful painting-one that please me.”
This creative process, she adds, is a gift, something to be let loose and be enthralled by the amazing realization, “That came from me”.
