Mary Jarvis' Art
Mary's philosophy about her art:
My grandfather planted the seed of art in my life. He was a maker, joke teller, dancer, and
musician. He made toys: whirligigs, noisemakers, as well as fanciful objects carved in
wood. He was an artist and persevered through his blindness. He taught me to see with
my hands and appreciate my vision. As I watched him make and work with tools, I knew I
wanted to be an artist.
