About the artist:
Nebraska-native Mary Linnea Vaughan earned an MFA from Maine College of Art in Portland in 2000, and an MA from the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence in 1995. She taught in Princeton, New Jersey, for 13 years before moving to Sonoma County. In her artist statement, she writes “To paint is to use color, shape and imagery much as a writer uses words. I cannot avoid irony or subtle, lyrical narrative in my work. It is there in the landforms. It is there in the abstractions. Yet, without formal composition and tangible fluency within the medium, things I crave in a work cannot happen either… Intuition must meet definition that only comes with time and growth.” More information at
