This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted September 2005, is from James R. Kieley, Researcher from Woodbury, Connecticut.


Mary Jane Q Cross of Newport New Hampshire was born in Rockville, Connecticut. She studied at The Wooster Art Museum School in 1970. At a later point, 1983, she studied with Daniel Green in New York, and influenced by him, she has completed over one-hundred portraits.

Some of her time between studies was spent teaching art classes.

Cross started to incorporate her knowledge of portrait and figure as a devise to produce Biblical Murals. She was honored with a one-woman show in 1991 at The Biblical Art Center Museum in Dallas, Texas. Some of her subjects were used by "Upper Room Magazine" as covers along with interior illustrations. Her current paintings featuring youthful females are usually painted in a large format.

Mary Cross deeply admires the works of the famous Academician William Bouguereau. At this point of her career she needs ample space to create. The larger scale of her works is necessary considering the fact that she suffered a trauma that restricted the use of her fingers. In short she could not hold a paint brush!

She overcame this obstacle by devising a way to apply non-toxic paints to the canvas, using her finger tips in place of the brush. She draws her subjects using a prosthesis attached to her shoulder.

The artist spends much of her time exhibiting throughout the East Coast.
