About Mary Rimmell

Mary Rimmell To understand my artwork, you need to get to know me. To start off, I was born in South Africa, I went to boarding school in Namibia and then lived majority of my young life in Botswana.

I lived a very carefree childhood, had wide open spaces to play, explore, and let my imagination run wild. At the age of ten during art class at school, doing my grid project of a clown. The teacher commented on what a good piece of work it was, and he encouraged me to continue with art.

That was the day that I decided that I wanted to be an artist.

Knowing that I am from Africa and how I grew up; you can see where all my passion of wildlife, and African influences came from. The wildlife and magnificent landscapes of Africa is my true inspiration for my work.

I am a self taught artist. The only formal training I had was that of high school art. However this did not deter me from improving my skills and techniques. Through discussion with other artists and their techniques and watching videos of artists and their techniques. And practicing those techniques I improved.

The major influences of my artwork would have to be impressionism. There is so much one could interpret or feel from an impressionistic art piece. Some of my favorite impressionist artists is Van Gogh, Monet, Manet and many more. Current fellow artists like Mary Beth Schiros inspires and encourages me to continue growing in my work.

   "I met the Artist Mary Rimmell as a business woman and teacher, when she had a local art supply store.  Having studied and painted with Mary for years, I know she is an adventurous perfectionist.  There is a boldness in her abstract style, yet tempered by her master skill in drawing.  The two skills, abstract painting and technical drawing combine in such a way, that Mary’s abstract paintings have definition off theme and concept.  Also, Mary’s work often shows inspiration from her life in South Africa, showing in the rich warm color choices and airy mood of her art work.  Knowing Mary, I would say she will always follow a path of invention of styles and techniques. Even with diversity, there will be the unifying base to art by Mary, due to her strong drawing and design skills.  Art by Mary Rimmell is inspiring and bold" - Mary Beth Schiros

Over the years my style has changed a lot and improved tremendously. Although I am still very passionate about painting African wildlife, landscapes and cultures, I have found that I enjoy doing abstract pieces as well. I would call myself an intuitive artist. I allow for the inspiration piece to guide me, telling me what colors to use and I also have an intuitive sense on what colors to use either to compliment one another or to mix to get a certain value.

My main mission as an artist is to bring joy to the viewer when they look upon my artwork. I want them to feel passion, happiness, and curiosity when they look at my artwork.
