The Garden House Gallery has been home to the permanent collection and working gallery of Mary-Dawn for 20 years.


From the private and public gardens of southern Ontario to the Trent Severn waterway near Georgian Bay, over the years I have painted any subject matter that speaks to me on an artistic and personal level.

Take me where there are flowers, gardens and water in any form.
Rushing, tumbling or silently glistening.
Show me a pine tree curving and swaying, swooping and dancing with the sky.
Let me see the fascinating shapes and velvety presence of a flower.
I am at home now.
