Mary Neville was born in Ireland and graduated from the National College of Art & Design in 1988. After working as a graphic designer for five years in Scotland, she travelled in Asia for a year in 1991. From 1995 to 2000, she lived and painted in Taiwan, with a year out in 1997 to travel in Africa.
Her paintings are a celebration of colour, with her early work being more representational and invoking scenes and memories of a personal travel log from Asia and Africa. Her current work tends towards impressionism, echoing the colours and moods of the landscape and nature that surrounds her.
Mary has had 9 solo shows in Dublin and Kerry and taken part in over 30 group shows, during the last 10 years.
