Mary Birmingham is an emerging multimedia artist from Wilmington, Delaware who received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from The University of Delaware in 2016. While studying there, Mary discovered a love for printmaking, sculpture, video and photography, all of which play a role in her artistic practice centered around painting. Mary learned to paint at a very early age with her mother, who worked as a freelance illustrator in the late 70's in New York City. This nature and nurture of art and craft is what has made Mary the artist she is today. She is a kind, passionate, old soul committed to an artistic lifestyle. She has completed several murals both collaborative and solo, and enjoys teaching instructional paint classes to all ages. Mary currently lives in Wilmington and rents a studio in Hockessin at the RH Gallery & Studios.
