Mary Troyer grew up in the Amish community near Lancaster, PA on a dairy farm. Her and her husband moved to the Eastern shore of MD in 1987 and raised their three children here. Mary is a self-taught artist. Some of her favorite subject matter for her water color and acrylics is from their poultry/beef farm in Kennedyville, MD. The eastern shore holds an abundance of natural beauty, as well. And yes, there is something special about Chestertown! In fact, her first endeavors with watercolors were of the Chester River and the 2016 ‘Paint The Town’. Thank you for your interest in my work, and of the local artists at the Chestertown River Arts Gallery.
