Mary Lee works in a variety of mediums — from traditional formats like watercolors, pastels, etching, and photography to new, innovative formats like her acrylic on canvas floor cloths, which are both aesthetically pleasing and functional. Inspired by nature, she gravitates towards whimsical depictions of animals and landscapes. "Red Pony" is an excellent representation of her work — it combines images from nature with an abstract environment, using vivid colors to infuse the painting with a unique energy.

Mary attended the Corcoran School of Art, in Washington D.C. and also studied in Switzerland and Greece. She exhibits her work throughout New England. Her professional experience started in New York with cards reproduced by George Caspari Inc., and Cranes Paper Company. She also designed the logo for The Boston Cultural Collaborative for Early Leaning, which represented eight museums of Boston. Mary Lee was filmed by WGBH-TV as the art instructor for the A.C.E.S. Project in collaboration with the Museum of Science, the Children's Museum, and Zoo New England. She also wrote and illustrated Island Dog Books, a series of early learning books, inspired by so many dogs, who find a way to live through extreme hardships.

Recently, Mary Lee has photographed for the calendar titled One Fall Morning on Dublin Lake. She also has three free apps now available on the iTunes store. Animations, Bear Games, and the latest one called Climate the Bunny are all fun and educational apps for children.
