Mara has always had a keen interest in expressing herself in the most precise way, whether it be capturing the beauty of nature or the candid moment of a child's face.
Born in Tuscany, Italy, Mara studied in Florence. Whilst living in England, she exhibited in many mixed exhibitions including the prestigious Royal Pastel Society, The Woman’s Art Society and Britain’s Painters ’90.
Mara has won 15+ awards for her work and has also been the feature artist at many exhibitions.
Living and painting in the Sutherland Shire, Mara now has extended her talents to painting miniatures and creating fun paintings of not only the Shire waterways but that of the Sydney Basin.
