The paintings of Mary Baxter St Clair take you into a magical world of fairies, angels, pixies, and wide-eyed children. Viewers are enveloped by the painter's sense of wonder and love for all things pure and innocent.
Born in St. Clair Shores, Michigan, into a large, creative family, the artist insists that "Fairies and angels have been part of my life since I was small and have always been very real to me." She claims to borrow their magic in her craft, painting with such realism as to create a longing in the viewer to believe her cherubs are real, and captured undetected on her canvases. The artist believes that fantasy is essential to keep us balanced in this all too real world.
Mary Baxter St Clair lives on the island of Kauai where she revels in the beauty of the underwater world and cheers at passing whales.
