Mary Louise Porter

Ocean Springs, MS

“The beginning of a painting is always mysterious to me. A painting develops for me, unraveling the composition, as the colors, line, shapes, and texture seems to emerge on the canvas.”

Mary Louise Porter is a contemporary landscape artist. She received a BFA and MFA in painting from Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge. Her work represents a journey of memories and images drawn from landscapes seen in her travels as well as experienced in the American South where she was born and raised. Each work of art captures the emotion and beauty of the location.
