Mary Mikawoz Biography

MARY MIKAWOZ

Winnipeg-born Mary Mikawoz has loved architecture, painting, and illustrating her own stories since kindergarten. Her father was an artist-photographer; a high-school teacher influenced her to experiment with abstraction. Mary has moved around Canada a lot, taking a Political Science degree, later qualifying as a new media specialist and earning a teaching degree. She has had jobs as social worker, federal civil servant, staff development officer, and teacher. Mary has put this varied experience to good use running her own company, Majestic Productions, which offers graphic design, photography and photo restoration, and website design. Mary says she’s friendly and personable. “I like beauty and powerful art. Art is everything to me,” she adds.

Currently, Mary produces abstract art in coloured India ink with nib pens, or in acrylic on canvas. Colourful swirling curves and sharp angles predominate, implying time, movement, and change. She allows her favourite music to influence her as she works. She also does photography, especially telephoto images of nature and wildlife subjects, many of which she has patiently stalked near her cottage close to Little Deer on Lake Winnipeg. Uniquely, she digitally combines her several genres, deepening the meaning and mood of her photos by incorporating abstract drawings into the composition. “In these pieces, the photo shows a static moment in time,” Mary explains, “while the addition of the abstract drawing reflects another, more dynamic and enigmatic aspect of the same subject.”

Great Gray Owl Together

Great Gray Owl Together

Mikawoz Owl Together

This is a Great Gray Owl and is Manitoba’s Provincial Bird Emblem in 1987. It is a photograph I took in dusk in winter north of Winnipeg, in Little Deer. I then drew an abstract Great Grey Owl to go with it and combined it in the computer.

According to Wikipedia, the great grey owl or great gray owl (Strix nebulosa) is a very large owl, documented as the world’s largest species of owl by length. It is distributed across the Northern Hemisphere, and it is the only species in the Strix genus found in both Eastern and Western Hemispheres. In some areas it is also called Phantom of the North, cinereous owl, spectral owl, Lapland owl, spruce owl, bearded owl, and sooty owl.
