2023 Featured Artist: Mary Linnea Vaughan

Mary Vaughan is a narrative, yet abstract painter whose work exudes a strong painterly quality and a fascination with nature, land forms and earth entity. Vaughan evokes meaning beyond the obvious with visual metaphor.

From her Eco-Abstracts based on the intuitive impulse of nature to her Bio-tiques whereby Vaughan combines the biotic world with antique or vintage panels, this artist finds unique ways to bring the past or the traditional into the contemporary.

Vaughan holds an MA from the Rhode Island School of Design and an MFA from the Maine College of Art in Portland. She has worked as a full time painter in Santa Rosa, Califonia since 2001. Raised in Nebraska by a father whose love for old fonts and color as a commercial printer and a mother whose literary interests ignited intellectual thinking, Vaughan continues to nurture her ties to the Midwest and lives part of each year in Santa Rosa and Hastings, Nebraska where she was born and raised.
