Staff; Mary Elizabeth Jewell, Artist
Mary has a BA in Art & a minor in International Studies. She has been doing art work, murals, etc. for many years. She worked and lived in the Eastern Bloc Countries of Europe where she used her artistic skills in teaching and studying.
She has taught English in Bulgaria and has a working knowledge of the language. Her dream is to use her talents to create avenues of expression for the orphans, refugees, and poor children of the area. She feels that art will make it easier to bridge the gap between the English speaking world and the countries of the former Soviet Union.
Her first illustrated children's book was published in 2008. The title is, Alexander Mack, A Man Who Rippled the Water. This book has over 50 illustrations in oil.
She also illustrated The Sawmill River Valley War in 2009. She did the cover in Oil on Clay Board, and 15 internal drawings in graphite on clay board. The cover is shown above.
