Mary Olin is an interdisciplinary artist whose work began in theatrical
design, props, and scenic painting. Through theater, she gained an appreciation
for creating objects and environments that are both functional and transformative. Inspired by the relationship between creator and viewer, she works to understand the importance of community and the collaboration that can occur between people, manufactured material, and the places both inhabit. While maintaining a commitment to the value of performance and experience in her art practice, she now lives and works in PA examining the ideas of waste, re-use, utility, and traditional craft. She keeps a studio in Boiling Springs, PA.
