About the Author
Mary Jane Lyon has been painting for seventy years. For the first four years of her life, she lived with a grandmother who thought that every mark she made on a piece of paper was a masterpiece. In early elementary school, art was her only area of peer acceptance. Fast forward past twenty-three years of teaching elementary school and eleven years serving as a pastor in a United Methodist Church, and she came full circle, teaching adults and children watercolor, pastels, charcoal and acrylics. She has taught at Pima Community College and is a member of the Southern Arizona Watercolor Guild, the Southern Arizona Arts Guild, Paper Works, and Contemporary Artists of Southern Arizona.
