Thanks for Dropping By!

My name is Mary-Jo Lough and I am an abstract artist based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. My work is a visual representation of my experience as a neurodivergent individual with ADHD.  I utilize pattern and line to harness a bold and chaotic background. The give and take between complication and clarity are indicative of how I process the world.  When I paint, the clutter of life disappears, and order is created. 

I am open for commissions and absolutely love working with clients to create a piece they resonate with deeply. If you enjoy my style but can't find something that fits you, please reach out so we can collaborate!
