Mary-Lynne Stadler - Fine Artist, Writer & Printmaker

I had the glimmering of an idea that painting was what I wanted to do the moment that I first felt and smelt oil paints, at around the age of ten, but it took many years, and many twists and turns until that wish became a reality.


By the time I finally succeeded in launching myself into a career in art I had had many jobs, often running concurrently. I had worked as a journalist, as a writer, and as an editor, and had run my own homeopathic practice. for sixteen years.


My art takes many forms, and how it turns out is often determined by what has inspired it in the first place,. The key thing is to be making connections to the things that are inspiring me, and to be expressing that connection in some creative way. At the end of the day it can emerge in paint, or as an artist's print, in mixed media or even as a written piece. 


I share my creative adventures and musings in my newsletter/Blog. You are welcome to join in the conversation. Simply complete the Contact Form to be kept up to date.
