Mary Anne Hodson

Mary Anne Hodson, a native West Virginian, describes herself as wife, mother and artist, but admits that her artist's hat gathered dust until two ofher three sons were in high school. At that time, Hodson was introduced to watercolor and that was the beginning of an obsession that continues today.

"Watercolor has become a way of life", she said, "and attending watercolor workshops fills a need to continue to learnand grow as an artist."

Hodson has studied with nationally known artists Tony Van Hasselt, Barbara Nechis, Alex Powers, Tony Couch, Jeanne Dobie, Pat Lusk, Janet Walsh, Tom Lynch, Frederick Graft, Skip Lawrence, Brian Atyeo, Frank Webb, Judi Betts, Jan Kunz, Doug Walton and Kathy Curry, among others.
