About Mary Rimmell

Mary Rimmell MEET THE ARTIST - MARY J. RIMMELL

To understand my artwork, you need to get to know me. To start off, I was born in South Africa, but while growing up, I went to boarding school in Namibia and then lived majority of my young life in Botswana.
I lived a very carefree childhood. I had wide open spaces to play, explore, and let my imagination run wild. My parents were not artistic as you would think as my artistic connections, but they were very crafty people that worked well with their hands.
Flash forward to when I was ten years old. I was in my art class doing my grid project of a clown. The teacher graded my work once it was completed and said it was a great piece, and that someday, I could become a really great artist. That was the day that I decided that I wanted to be an artist.

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

I never got any awards for my artwork, or belonged to any organization while in South Africa. But I did have a very successful show in Gaborone, Botswana and then after that I was featured in a 1999 “Sunâ€
