Collection: Mary Ross Buchholz

For 25 years, art has been Mary Ross Buchholz's devotion. Mary and her husband live and ranch in rural West Texas near the town of Eldorado. Coming from a pioneering ranching family, she offers a glimpse of her daily ranch life through her paintings, sculptures and the most primitive of mediums, charcoal and graphite. She strives to capture the authenticity of their way of life by gathering reference material from the ranch, and as a result, each piece she creates is a testament to her family's ranching traditions.

 Mary relishes in creating the portrait, whether the subject is an animal or a person; she enjoys subtlety rendering the details, the different textures and the individual characteristics of her subjects. It has been said that her drawings seem timeless and impart a simplicity without distractions. She strives to captivate the viewer both up-close and from a distance.

 “I want my pieces to not only look real, but feel real. I’m always mindful of the subject’s personality and hope each piece is portrayed with honesty and simplicity. I am blessed that what I enjoy drawing is right here, out my backdoor.”

 Mary is an award-winning artist who participates in many museum shows across the country and is represented by InSight Gallery in Fredericksburg, Texas.
