Purchase Information

Mary Ann had a natural born talent for art. As a child, she taught herself to paint and enjoyed creating numerous sketches. She graduated from Bryant College in Providence with a degree in business administration. She put her skills to work as an administrative assistant for the Health Department in the Army Medical Corps at the various bases where her husband was stationed. During the war, she studied with art professors and accomplished artists wherever and whenever she could. She even did art therapy with the injured patients at the army hospitals.

Back in civilian life, Mary Ann was a substitute art teacher for children in New Bedford Public Schools for 10 to 12 years during the 70's and 80's. She did art therapy with senior citizens and patients in South Coast hospitals. She impressed her family by reconstructing the picture of her brother-in-law who perished in the Holocaust and made it into a portrait.

She worked in a multitude of media including acrylics, oils, watercolors, charcoals, pen & ink and collages. She even turned some of her paintings into note cards and placemats to which she enjoyed incorporating her own poetry and famous quotations. She created artwork everyday throughtout her life and continually took art classes to enrich and broaden her skills.

Mary Ann mentored children, family, friends and anyone who showed an interest in art. She brought them into her home where she dedicated one room for her beautiful colleciton of Asian works.

Mary Ann's favorite saying was, "Art is my life. Without art, I couldn't live." She made a positive impact on the lives of hundreds of people before leaving us on August 26, 2005 at 81 years old. She will be greatly missed, but her work will continue to be appreciated by us all.

Mary Ann's work was featured in numerous art exhibits in New Bedford, Providence and Boca Raton, Florida. She was a member of many art associations in New Bedford and was one of the founders of the Bierstadt Art Society. She was also associated with various art societies in Boca Raton, Florida, her winter home in her later years.

Recently, in August, 2006, there was a one-woman show of the art work of Mary Ann Segall. It was held at the Wamsutta Club in New Bedford, Massachusetts.
