About the Artist

Mary Remick-Lafond was raised in the Arcadia and Pasadena area of Southern California. She has been painting and drawing for her own pleasure for most of her life. Mary majored in art and art history at the University of California Santa Barbara, where she received her B.A. degree and her Art teaching credential.

Following the raising of her two daughters and retiring from a successful business career, she has returned to her first love, painting. Her subject matter is usually landscapes which are started on location and finished in her studio. She says she never really "saw a tree" until she picked up a paint brush. She calls herself an impressionist landscape painter and enjoys using strong color and light.

Mary has exhibited in galleries, museums, and colleges throughout the South Western United States. Her paintings hang in private and corporate collections. She is the founder of the Eastern Sierra Art League, a group of artists living in the Eastern Sierras, who are painting the history and landscape of the area between Ridgecrest, California to Reno, Nevada. After nine years of living and painting in Bishop, Mary has returned to the Santa Barbara area and her studio is now located in Goleta, California.
