Mary Tedesco

ILLUSTRATION & BIOLOGY


Mary Tedesco

Is an artist from Bethel, Connecticut, USA. She creates art using digital and traditional methods. She holds a BA from Western Connecticut State University, and currently works at A&F Gallery in Newtown, Connecticut as a picture framer. In September 2022 she will begin her MSc program in Medical Visualisation and Human Anatomy at the Glasgow School of Art in Glasgow, Scotland.

Mary uses observation and biological understanding from her studies to apply science to her work. She creates representational as well as abstract works of art.

Mary displays a range of illustrative and painterly techniques, and can represent both fantastical and realistic subject matter. She is proficient in observational drawing and can create accurate representations of life. 

Motivated by a deep appreciation for both biology and art, studying life and working closely with scientific practices provides Mary with endless learning opportunities. She is interested in scientific information and depicting biological mechanisms and structures. She believes that, through an understanding of how organisms might appear and operate in our world, any artist will benefit. One of Mary's main goals as an artist is to be able to share what she learns about life with the rest of the world in a way that many people can understand and enjoy.
