Meet Mary Ann Rozear, Artist

Mary Ann Rozear is an award winning artist who lives in Hampstead, NC and works out of her studio at ArtExposure, where she has been a member since 2010. her subject matter is as varied as her choice of medium. Whether using watercolors, acrylics, or oils she strives to elicit an emotional response from the viewer with each painting.


Mary Ann began painting in 2002 while living in Blowing Rock, NC. While there she was able to study for six years with many master painters. She was most influenced by Mary Ann Beckwith, Gerald Brommer, and Skip Lawrence, whose philosophy was to encourage each student to paint in their own style. Skip said, “When people view your paintings you want them to say WOW, not she/he must have studied with...” They gave her permission to be herself and paint from her heart.


Over the past 17 years, Mary Ann has developed her own unique approach to painting, believing that the enjoyment she 

gets during the process of painting translates to the finished piece.


Her first love was watercolor, but for the past few years she has been using her skills to develop her own style of acrylic and oil painting. She has taught art and workshops at ArtExposure for the past 7 years.


Over the years, Mary Ann has participated in numerous juried shows, including the WAA Annual Spring Show, Art in the Arboretum, and Landfall Shows in North Carolina.  She received the WWA Walter Garner Memorial Award (2013) and the WWA Gail  Henderson Memorial Award (2014).
