Biography Mary Qian
Raised in China, Mary Qian is a painter of figurative subjects who basically taught herself to paint from books. She studied science and dentistry in China because it was difficult to enroll in art schools. However, she was able to study art at Brigham Young University in Utah because of the influence of friends of her parents.
In 1998, Qian graduated from there and has won many art awards including a merit award at the 2000 Springville Museum of Art "Spring Salon." She works full time as a graphic designer and spends several hours each night doing fine art painting. On Saturdays, she and a group of fellow artists paint together, and in addition to figures, she also does landscapes and still lifes.
