About Mary Pohlmann Art

Artist Statement

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 before moving to Miami, Florida.  In 2020, I moved to Seattle, Washington. 


My quirky, contrary and often messy protagonists are inspired by fairy tales, myths, nature, theatre and animation.  The allegorical portraits invite the viewer to look at the beauty of Life including its messier bits -broken hearts, imperfection and impermanence - with a sense of humor.
