Hi. My name is Maryann Lucas and I am an artist. I have been an artist on the inside, in my heart, for my whole life but I only gave myself permission to be one on the outside about twenty years ago. Even then, it was just part-time, because raising my children held my full attention. I tended to paint what my life was about: family and home – the simple things. I sold well at art auctions and through gallery representation. I have been commissioned to paint numerous family portraits over those years.
Now I am beginning a new chapter in my life. My children are raised. I am devoting myself fully to painting. My intention is to paint daily and to expand my painting experience. I want to paint out-of-doors and to do more still life and landscapes.
