Mary Reilly, Seashells 3, photorealist graphite nature drawing, 2018

2018

About

Reilly uses a toning technique to endow her graphite works with a smooth, seamless quality. Rather than distinct outlines, her seashells glide gracefully into one another, creating a tumbling mosaic. It is this sense of delicacy, coupled with precision of her gradient, that captures the shells' texture in this hyperrealist drawing. New York native Mary Reilly studied art at SUNY Purchase, the School of Visual Arts, the Art Students League of New York, and the National Academy School of Fine Arts. After a career as a graphic designer, she began pursuing her career as an artist full time and studied with artists Frederick Brosen and Sharon Sprung. She currently lives and works in Manhattan.
