Mayer, an artist living with multiple sclerosis (MS), is native to the Puget Sound region and currently resides in the community of Point Roberts, Washington. She is grateful to live among the shoreline, forests, and lively culture that inspire her paintings. Creating art is a lifelong process for Mayer, who as a young girl studied various art media before finding her niche in watercolor. The distinctive freshness and diversity of the medium captivates her. In 1989 she attended her first painting workshop, taught by Zoltan Szabo in Cannon Beach, Oregon. Her education advances through regular workshops and art books. Her love of the Pacific Northwest, gardening, kayaking and painting en plein air while traveling with her husband strongly influence Mayer’s artwork. Her paintings have been selected for major exhibits and have been honored with many awards. Her work hangs in corporate and private collections throughout the U.S. and Canada. Presently, her artwork is represented by Blue Heron Gallery in Point Roberts, and Jansen Art Center in Lynden, Washington. She is a member of Northwest Watercolor Society and Seattle Co-Arts.
