Mary Roberson lives in Hailey, Idaho, where she takes advantage of nearby Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks for inspiration. She has said that she feels that wildlife chooses her as subject matter, rather than the other way around. For Roberson, composition is the driving force and she uses a muted palette in order to highlight the composition. She builds her paintings through layers of paint, with representational images of animals against earth-tone backgrounds. Roberson has captured the attention of private collectors and museums alike. She was the featured painter at the 2010 Western Visions. Her work has been featured in Wildlife Art, Southwest Art, and Art and Antiques.
