My work will be in two markets at the beginning of December! I will be manning my booth at The Curated Market YYC in the PBPCA on Friday, December 2nd, and Saturday, December 3rd, and then I will be heading over to the 500 Collective on Sunday, December 4th. Not to worry though, my mini me (my daughter) will be at the 500 Collective representing me Saturday, December 3rd! Both markets are going to be amazing and feature very talented artists and artisans!
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!

In Abstract Expressions I delve into what inspires me, my struggles, lessons learned & how I have developed my process and much more!
The first post takes a look at the role of fear in art and how I was motivated to create the DIVERGENT collection.
The comment section will be open and I am excited to interact and invite you to ask questions as well.

Studio & Viewings
Here's me in my happy place! Working in my art studio here in Calgary Alberta. Near the end of 2019 I "renovated" a spare bedroom with tons of natural light into an art studio, including building my much beloved wall easel.
Soon I will be moving into a studio at the 500 Collective in SW Calgary. There will be public hours for viewing and more event opportunities so stay tuned! Sign up for email updates at the bottom of this page to stay in the know.
Currently I offer in-person and virtual viewings of my work. Please feel free to call or email to set up a time. As mentioned above, my studio is in Calgary, Alberta - but I do ship worldwide.
