Mary Cossey

Although Mary studied at the Ravensbourne College of Art, she did not take up painting until 1970. She diversified into etching as her preferred medium after 1978 and produces her work in a very distinctive style.


The majority of her work is focused on children, from her own offspring to those playing on the beach. This is a subject that is dear to her heart and her images provide her audience with the tranquillity experienced watching children at play.


Mary has exhibited widely over the years; Heals, Liberty, the Royal Society of Painters, and the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, to mention only a few. We were delighted to commission an edition from her called 'Pebble Building' which shows the children building pebble castles (an annual event) on the beach here in Budleigh Salterton.
