About Mary Pohlmann Art
Once Upon A Time The Brothers Grimm Went To Art Therapy...
My love for drawing began when I received the child’s version of an animator’s light desk - complete with traceable images of Snow White and Barbie. I was five. During my colorful punk years, I studied Art and Theatre at Incarnate Word College in my native San Antonio, Texas.
I lived in Miami, Florida for 30 years and recently moved to Seattle, Washington. My quirky, contrary and often messy heroines are inspired by fairy tales, Japanese woodblock prints, and pop-surrealism.. The allegorical portraits invite the viewer to look directly at the beauty of the Life’s messier bits: broken hearts, imperfection and impermanence. And all with a sense of humor.
