Each painting by Mary Ann King reflects a genuine aspect of her life. They tell stories of memories and desires that have been intensely present along the path that she has taken.

Mary Ann's landscapes, flowers, rural barns and houses, cars of the distant past, wildlife, still-life, and people scenes each have a story to tell. Her paintings invite the viewer to experience an adventure into the outstanding world of nature and wonderful peace.

Being born in 1948 to cotton and soybean farmers, Henry Clay and Alma Collins, gave Mary Ann the opportunity to experience nature in a very tangible way. She remembers walking barefoot in the long, cool, furrows as her daddy plowed the ground with his mule "Old Jake". She grew to love the outdoors - the fresh air, beautiful trees, wildflowers, and mouth watering fruits and vegetables her parents harvested each year. Mary Ann, her two younger brothers and sister were great adventurers, exploring the deep fragrant woods and small shallow stream on their farm. It was there she acquired a reverent respect for the God who created such a lovely world, and her love for art began.

Romance, Arkansas has been home to Mary Ann and her husband Philip for almost forty years. They have two children and five grandchildren. They enjoy the clean, fresh air and peacefulness of their farm life.

Mary Ann is a realist painter and works exclusively in oils, acrylics, and watercolors. Her favorite subjects are landscapes, flowers, and wildlife. She loves painting the splendor that God has created for us to enjoy. "Beauty is everywhere, and I strive to paint each scene as close to the way it was created as I can. When I complete a painting, I always wish that I had done a better job," says Mary Ann.

Mary Ann is a member of the Creative Arts Society, Arkansas League of Artists, Searcy Arts Council, and is listed in the Arkansas Artist's Registry of the Arkansas Arts Council.

Creating the beauty of nature is the driving force behind Mary Ann's art. "God's creation sings out life and peace continually and I want to be a part of it all", says Mary Ann. She feels that she must create, and she always has a painting in progress.
