Mary Coyle

Personal Description:


In Loving Memory of our mom who passed away on October 15, 2008 after a 3 1/2 year battle with Stage IV Ovarian Cancer. Our mom was an amazing woman and never gave up. She was a true fighter until the disease overtook her. She was loved by so many and touched the hearts of all who knew her. The days, months and years ahead will be very hard without her here. But we know that she is now free of pain and is watching over us every day.

Another Christmas without you. It was by far the hardest one. I miss you so much and wish you were here. The kids miss “Grandma” and wish you were here to be a part of their life. We know you are watching over us every day and smiling. I love you mom !!!

Your work is really wornedful, Megan! It is very similar to what many fiber artists are doing in making art quilts using scraps of fabric and making landscapes, portraits, and representational works.I like the idea that you are using papers from magazines to build your collages. What a great way to turn refuse into artwork for collectors to enjoy in their homes and offices.Continued Success!
