This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Mary Long (1917-1997)
 
Born in Somerville Massachusetts in 1917, Mary Long was formally trained at the Vesper  School of Art, Boston Massachusetts.  She painted all over New England, concentrating on Provincetown, Cape Cod and Rockport Massachusetts.  Many of her early watercolors are nautical and include the weathered buildings of the coastal working waterfront.

During her early career, Mary designed cards for Rust Craft Greetings of Dedham, Massachusetts and also worked as an artist for a local newspaper, The Lowell Sun, Sunday Magazine.  Throughout her life, nature played a major role in her inspiration to create art.  Her studio on Rock Pond in Windham New Hampshire was a colorful testament to her artistic ability, and her refuge.  From every window of her little cottage, she had water views and canopies of large pines.  As she grew older, she experimented with sculpture of animals and birds as well as paintings of the wildflowers which surrounded her.

Although Mary was active in local art associations, she preferred the solitude of her studio and her quintessential life as a quiet artist.  Mary never married and died in 1997.
