Cary grew up with an artist for a mother, then married and art major and raised two sons who both majored in art, so she has been around, among, and in the midst of art for a very long time.
After a 30 year teaching career in Humboldt County, Cary and her husband moved to Columbia to be closer to their family. It was then that she decided it was her turn to be a painter.
Cary studied with Gereon Rios after moving to Columbia. She has also taken classes from Diana Boyd.
She is an active member of the Mother Lode Art Association and is currently showing her work at the Aloft Art Gallery.
“I’m finding painting to be wonderfully challenging, extremely satisfying and quite exciting”
