Mary Garrish

Mary Garrish

Mary Garrish was born in Miami Beach, Florida giving her southern landscapes a true home feeling. She served as the President of the American Impressionist Society from 2005-2007.  Her major interest is Plein Air landscapes, but does do Representational pieces as well.  She paints annually around the world and at her studio.

When asked about leaving a career in surgery for full time painting, Mary replies “I was pulled to art, not pushed from medicine.”   She has devoted intense study in both her studio work and in regular workshop participation with many of the great landscape artists of this era.  Her art hangs in galleries and private collections around the United States.  Mary has been selected to participate in numerous national juried shows, and has had several one-woman shows at both galleries and museums.
