Born in Indianapolis, Indiana, Mary Jones Easley received her Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts from Herron School of Art and Design. She began her career as a graphic artist being contracted by the NBA, NCAA, NFL, MLB and NHL to design their screen graphics. Some time later, she moved to Burbank, California, to pursue further opportunities. While living there, she was not only a freelance Ink & Paint and Color Key Artist for numerous animation studios including Disney and Warner Bros. Studios, but also hired to paint color models for The Simpsons and King of the Hill animated series. These opportunities helped to advance Mary's refined color sensitivity, which is dynamically reflected through each of her paintings.
She resides in Seattle, Washington, where she shares a studio with her husband, Martin Easley. Mary's work hangs in private collections and has been shown in galleries in Indianapolis, Burbank, North Hollywood, Pasadena, Chicago and Seattle.
