This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Mary Obering was born in Shreveport Louisiana in 1937 and is currently active.  She studied at the University of Denver where she received her  MFA in 1971.

Obering divides her time between New York and Italy.  Her work, which combines traditional Renaissance techniques with rigorous formalism, derived from American minimalism art and clearly reflects her peregrinations.

Her current works favor the use of egg tempera and gold leaf on gessoed panels and are a true hybrid of painting and sculpture suggesting an alchemical mystery and imperial elegance all in one.

She has been exhibiting around the world since 1971 and is in many important public and private collections i.e. Wadsworth Atheneum, Hartford, Connecticut;  Museum Fine Arts, Boston , Massachusetts, Muse de Arte, Costa Rica etc.
