Please join me for my first watercolor show.

Mary Fortner-Smith

The spirit that guides my hand and makes my heart race with a new idea or design is that same force that all artists feel. The drive to create, to make something beautiful or functional or inspirational is what keeps us breathing and living. Art- in all forms- gives joy to the world and to the artist.
