Mary Marine

I have been fortunate to be invited aboard a Great Lakes freighter for a couple of trips. These have been the highlights of my career. Being on board gives you a whole new perspective and hopefully gives more feeling to the paintings that I produce.

Mary Demroske studied art at Lake Superior State University and continues to teach herself and take an occasional workshop from noted artists when convenient. She spends the long Michigan winters at the easel and her summers are spent doing juried shows almost every weekend.

I'm not a history expert but I have learned a great deal about the Great Lakes shipping. It's a fascinating subject and I enjoy painting the calm scenes as well as using my imagination to create a believable shipwreck and sinking.

Oil is my favorite medium, but I have worked extensively in pen and ink and also enjoy switching to watercolor from time to time.
