Mary C. Erickson
I was a graphic designer for many years and enjoyed designing publications and working with my clients. Taking a break to be home with our children, I shifted my creative energy back to making art. I studied printmaking, acrylic painting and watercolor at the Danforth Art School and I absolutely fell in love with the freedom and spontaneity of watercolor! Now years after taking classes at the Danforth, I work as the Visitor Services Coordinator at the Danforth Art Museum in Framingham where I enjoy being surrounded by inspiring art and artists.
