Mary Doane


Mary Doane is a realistic watercolourist, with an emphasis on still life. In her own words: “I enjoy drawing the spectator’s eye to details that would otherwise go unnoticed and bring him or her to discover the beauty that is to be found in the textures and forms of the everyday objects around us. Even though spectacular beauty awaits us when we lift our eyes towards a picturesque landscape, wonderful discoveries can be made by looking closely at a bird’s feather, the texture of tree bark or the fascinating patterns created by old paint that peels off to let ancient wood peek through…”

Meticulous in planning and execution, she was attracted to the unforgiving nature of watercolour. She studied the medium under Paul-Yvan Gagnon (SCA), Ghislain Lefebvre, Jack Reid (CSPWC), and Truong Chanh Trung.

Mary has been the recipient of numerous awards and recognitions, such as first prize in the Professional Watercolour category at the Symposium Domaine-Joly-de-Lotbinière (2012, 2013, 2014), several prizes at the Salon de l’Aquarelle from the Société Canadienne de l’Aquarelle (2006, 2008), and is a signature member of the International Guild of Realism and the Institut des Arts Figuratifs. Her work is in private collections throughout Canada and abroad.
