OUR APRIL ARTIST IS MARY THOMA

The Irish Cultural Center is proud to present as our April artist, Mary Thoma.  A few words from Mary about her art.
I've always had a love for Celtic knots and for drawing, so a few years ago I decided to try and draw the knot charm that I wore and that's how it all started.  I love to work with pastels, they give the softest look and make the shadowing look the best, but I also have fun using color pencils and markers.  I like to recycle the frames, so when I get the frame I try to do each piece to go best with the frame.  It's been a pleasure to share my work with people. It makes me happy to see people enjoying it so much. And I'm so glad to be sharing my work with the Phoenix Irish Cultural Center.
