About marywinkes

Mary majored in Painting at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. She also studied Sculpture, Drawing, Design, Photography, and Ceramics. When her daughters were growing up and her husband directed excavations and art exhibitions she decided to work as an archaeological draftsperson and illustrator so that the family could enjoy traveling abroad together. For this, she took courses at the Rhode Island School of Design in Drawing Archaeological Artifacts, Maps and Graphs, Mechanical Illustration, Life Drawing, and Medical Drawing and Illustration. These drawings were part of exhibitions at the Museum of Art, RISD, the Bell Gallery, Brown University, the Art Gallery at DePaul University in Chicago, the Archaeological Museum on Corfu, Greece, and in Brazil at the Museu Paulista in São Paulo, the Museu de Valores, Brasília, and the Museu Histórico Nacional, Rio de Janeiro. Her Illustrations have appeared in various publications in Belgium, Brazil, Egypt, Germany, Greece, Italy, and the United States. Since she has returned to full-time painting, she does not work as a draftsperson and illustrator anymore. She also enjoys the company and support of her artist friends in Damariscotta, Maine very much. In September 2014 she had a one-woman show of her paintings, watercolors, and drawings at the Spring Bull Gallery in Newport, Rhode Island. Since 2014 her work was exhibited at various places in the Damariscotta region. You can also inquire about purchases by writing to
