Mary Skrenta grew up in the shadow of the New York City skyline, but left home at a young age to spend most of her life traveling, exploring, and learning. After graduating from Capital University with dual degrees in 1999, she went on to earn her MFA at Columbus College of Art & Design in 2016. She is passionate about teaching and mentoring at CCAD while maintaining a thriving studio practice in Columbus, Ohio. She exhibits her award-winning art across the United States and is a 2017 recipient of The Ohio Arts Council Individual Excellence Award.
Mary is the dedicated mother of two teenagers and, in addition to art and education, enjoys travel, nature, mindfulness, patience, and compassion.
