ABOUT THE ARTIST
Mary K is an artist based in central Zambia. She works mainly in oils on canvas, although she dabbles in acrylics and mixed media. Drawing is important to her as a means of discovery.
Her paintings are mostly representational, including portraits, still life and landscapes.
Without a preferred subject, she paints that which resonates with her emotionally and aesthetically, be it portraits of family, past and present or the beautiful natural environment in which she lives. It’s not always the subject matter that drives her, but the challenge of the painting process itself.
