In 1995 Mary Ogle, a traditionally trained oil painter and printmaker, lost the sight in her right eye. The loss of depth perception and ability to see fine detail affected her work greatly. About a year before she became partially sighted, however, she began experimenting with a new medium – the computer.
Over the next several years, with much trial and error, she painstakingly retrained herself to paint in the digital medium. Her traditional training gave her the solid foundation and structure to created balanced and harmonious compositions – while still allowing her artistic vision to burst through in color, shape and line.
