Mary has turned her kitchen into her studio, where I chose to photograph her. Mary might be defined as an Outsider Artist; she paints, draws and makes sculptures. Her home in South Minneapolis (near 50th & Penn) has been turned into a work of art. She paints and decorates it with her colorful designs and displays sculptures in her yard. Not everyone likes what she does, but Mary has a strong will even in the face of controversy. She has been victimized on several occasions physically amd verbally, and her house continues to be vandalized.
