Mary Jane Piccuirro

Medium: Sculpture

Booth #: GN25C

Artist bio: I’m a self taught artist & have been doing shows for the last 45 years in different media. At the age of 49 I found my passion (so it’s never to late). I took a one week class in OMEGA Institute on mask making & movement. At the end of the week we performed with our mask, I was HOOKED .
I won many awards, the one I’m most proud of is in 2018 I won the Honoring the future Sustainability Award from the Smithsonian Craft Show.
My Masks are sculpted from recycled paper. I deeply care about your planet.
I love what I’m doing & hope you do too.

Artist Statement: My Masks are sculpted from recycled paper, much like one working in clay, when dry they can be carved, they are then sanded & primed & painted black. then painted with acrylics painted, varnished & embellish with horse hair, rafia & found objects
