ARTIST RESUME . MARY PRIOR 
 
Mary Prior lives in Salt Lake City, and is best known  
for her paintings of western landscapes.  
 
She studied art and art history at Brigham Young  
University. In addition, she has, throughout her artistic  
career, taken various professional workshops to hone 
her skills. However, she considers herself primarily  
self taught. Having been drawing and painting since  
childhood, she has developed her own distinctive style.  
 
Although she originally started painting in oils, she prefers  
to work in watercolor and acrylics. She enjoys painting  
the panorama of scenes in the American west. Her paintings  
reflect the incredible vegetation of the mountains and the 
the stark beauty of the desert landscape.  
 
Although she prefers to work in the controlled conditions 
of her studio, she sometimes enjoys plein air painting in  
good weather. Her work is original, and is often adapted  
from photographs taken by her husband, Robert (also an artist) 
as the two of them travel throughout the western states.  
 
Her paintings have hung in the First Street Gallery in Salt  
Lake City; as well as in one person shows at private  
business establishments.  
 
Her paintings now hang in many private collections  
throughout the western United States.
