As a psychologist, my work is often inspired by themes of struggle, personal growth, and transformation. I'm especially responsive to the life stories and works of women artists, poets, and writers.

Mary Bast        Fine Art



Until 2014 I painted representational art with oils. Since then, I've been experimenting with acrylics, abstracts, and mixed media.

I'm also a writer and editor of Bacopa Literary Review

I've studied with Lissa Friedman and attended workshops with Linda Blondheim, Vicki Damon Johnson, Richard Lundgren, Annie Pais, Linda Pence, Jane Slivka, Sherry O'Neill, and Nika Zackharov. Also online learning from Hiroshi Matsumoto, Jane Davies, and others.
