Mary Kooi’s paintings reflect her love of light and color, particularly as reflected in outdoor scenes, and she loves to travel with fellow artists to find inspiration for her canvases. She has been a student of art most of her life, including minoring in Art at St. Joseph’s College in Indiana, and then earning a BFA from the Art Institute of Chicago in Textiles. She studies under the instruction of Valeri Larko at the Visual Art Center of New Jersey in Summit.
Ms. Kooi hails from the Chicago area and moved to Summit in 2000. She volunteers as a tutor with Literacy Volunteers and with the Mayor’s Partnership of Summit Public Art while working full time in furniture sales at Panache Designs at the D&D Building in NY.
