“My paintings are derived from particular moments of recognition and awareness, emerging from events and experiences in my life. These moments of recognition are often revealed by qualities of light and relationships of colour, my attention is initially captured and then slowly released and transformed through the processes and materials of painting.”

In her thirty-year career as a painter Mary Mabbutt has exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Royal Academy as well as the Arts Council and numerous galleries national and international.
