Mary Lou Pape
Originally from Kansas, with special days spent on my grandparents’ farm, I have always had a love of nature and animals. Drawing horses was my favorite pastime as a child. Since moving to Colorado, painting North American wildlife and the western way of life has become my passion.
I frequently travel to experience and photograph subjects in their natural surroundings. This first-hand knowledge is invaluable, providing me with endless inspiration. I enjoy focusing on the details with a close-up view and dramatic light.
I am so grateful for the awards my work has received, including Best in Show and People’s Choice awards and for my collectors throughout the US.
