Mary has always been drawn to the arts. After beginning her career as an interior designer, dabbling in fashion and staging model homes, Mary’s love of creating an atmosphere and a feeling in the spaces she entered inspired her to launch Very Merry Events in 2008.

In addition to creating memorable experiences, Mary sent her clients’ home with physical mementos in the form of custom illustrations that became an indispensable part of her design process. In 2013, Mary took that love of illustration to the next level, launching The Sketchbook Series to help other event planners and designers learn a skill that had become a key way that she communicated with her clients.

Although Mary no longer plans and designs events, she has become an impactful creative influencer and has a passion for inspiring creatives everywhere.

Aside from traveling and teaching, Mary shares her adventurous days with her husband and 2 little boys located in the San Francisco, Bay Area.

“I love how my art has become a way to work with and support other event professionals. I love using it to empower and encourage creatives to pursue their passions. I want my art to inspire others to keep working toward their dreams.”
