About the Artist

Mary Singleton is an artist living and working in New Orleans. She is known for her bright, Fauvist-influenced, contemporary and figurative floral paintings. Drawing her inspiration from the tropical flora of New Orleans, Mary describes her artworks as a “a dialogue between the vivid surroundings of New Orleans, its eclectic inhabitants and the mutual influence upon one another."

While at LSU, Mary received a nomination to attend Yale Norfolk and the Baton Rouge Art League's annual scholarship. Currently, she teaches weekly at Saint James Place Retirement Community as their resident art instructor, engaging the residents in art's therapeutic properties. She also works with the Walls Project as a site manager and artist on community murals. She spends her time painting in her studio, collecting plants and spending time with those dearest to her.
