Mary Hickman has been making art work for most of her life. She has a BA in Art from Rosary College, in River Forest Ill. Because the usual life events have interrupted her artwork, she has relied on books, working with fellow artists in the Franklin County At Alliance, and recently; drawing workshops at Studio Incamminati in Philadelphia. Mary is a former president of the Franklin County Art Alliance, and is also a member of SHAPE in Shippensburg, and CALC in Carlisle. Mary enjoys painting in oils, watercolors, and acrylics. Mary considers drawing to be very important to one's artistic growth. She paints realistically, and especially enjoys painting our beautiful countryside. Mary has a "day job" at Hickman Automotive in Shippensburg.
