Mary Hobbs and Annie in a Chair Mary Hobbs
Colored Pencil Artist
Colored Pencil Society of America, CPSA



Mary Hobbs pencil paintings are a lengthy process using layer upon layer of translucent color. This achieves a realistic, warm result.

She also works in mixed media, graphite and charcoal.

All paintings are done on archival and acid-free, fine quality board which insures the longevity of your painting.

All paintings are worked from photographs. Mary takes her own or, if not possible, borrows many of your snapshots.

A non-refundable $150.00 down payment is the only requirement. This enables her to make many sketches and place the subject in various choices of size and price. The $150 is then deducted from the final cost.

Design & Sizes vary, depending on the level of detail.

Prices start at $500.

Mary has learned that each subject in the portrait dictates the final choice.  She captures the likeness as well as the very 'soul' of the subject.


"It's a gift that I have practiced for forty years and I am eternally grateful!"
