“The warmth of the rising sun burns off the fog as three egrets start their day in marsh. This time of the morning is one of my favorites, watching nature awaken with its gentle beauty. The morning mist softens the edges and diffuses the color palette of the scene, creating visual harmony.” This painting was featured in Mary’s solo show at Helena Fox Fine Art in Charleston, SC in December.

A lifelong environmental activist and artist, Mary Erickson depicts her coastal environments with sensitivity to its inhabitants. Dedicated to the protection of birds and the natural landscape, Mary has devoted her life, through her art, to seeing that natural areas are preserved for future generations. Her own 39-acre property in North Carolina is slated to be left as a bird sanctuary and artists’ retreat. Visit

Mary is in Venice, Florida for the winter, and holds monthly studio openings. Submit your email to receive special studio invitations this season to: [email protected].
