MARY TUFF I live in St. Thomas ON and I have always had a desire to pursue my love of the Arts. Photography has always been a passion of mine, along with the desire to paint many of the Photographs I have taken over the years. After I retired I joined the Young at Art classes held at the St. Thomas Seniors’ Centre to begin my learning of Water Colour Painting & still participate in those classes. I also have had the privilege of working with Rochelle Neal, an accomplished Artist from St. Thomas ON. Over the last 5 years I have participated in the Appreciation of the Arts Show held the second week in May every year for over 30+years here in St.Thomas ON. In 2016 I received recognition for the Featured Water Colour Artist from the 2015 show. I am a member of the St. Thomas Artist Guild & have participated in their November Art Show’s each year in 2017 I received my first Honourable Mention ribbon. This will be my second year to participate in the Off The Wall Art Show held at the Quai Du Vin Winery. I have sold a number of paintings and have had a few commissioned paintings for which I am very proud. My other interests have been singing in the Port Stanley Community Choir & the Lunch Bunch Choir.
