Mary Pat Ettinger
A landscape painter and illustrator for greeting card companies, Mary Pat Ettinger works in a contemporary style with acrylic on canvas. Light and shadow are implicit to her work in addition to a strong sense of design and shape. Combining spontaneous flows of color as well as tightly controlled edges, her work expresses both warm strength and a serene sense of the goodness and hope in life.
Influenced deeply by the rural area she lives in, Mary Pat’s works often reflect the organic nature of man-made structures being embraced by the landscape. Mary Pat studied at Laguna Beach School of Art and Chapman College and her award winning works are represented by the Arts at Denver Gallery and the Center for Visual Arts in Steamboat Springs. She has illustrated several books, and published one of her own. She lives with her husband in northwest Colorado.
