“I was always into art. I used to come home from preschool with stacks of drawings everyday,” Mary Finlayson recalls. And while a lotta kids got comfy with Crayolas, Mary’s creative itch stuck big-time. The Vancouver native got her BFA in painting and printmaking, but the process of making a living at the work was a bit more complex than she’d expected. “I got really discouraged early on, so I went back to school and got my masters in art therapy and another degree in art education,” she explains.

Enter her splashy, colorful Painted Mary prints, which bring so much cheer to any wall they hang on that they’d be equally suited for a (mighty sophisticated) children’s book.
