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.”

Twin Souls

Mikawoz Twin Souls

This was one of the lost frame on a film camera. I took the shot through glass and it worked. I then manipulated the image so that there are two tigers in the same picture. It is the same tiger but looks like a mother-child image. It is for me, twin souls. I hope you like it.

This turtle is happily swimming amongst the fishes. I like the appearance of a sparkle of light off of its mouth.

According to Wikipedia, Lake Louise is in a hamlet in Alberta, which in turn was named after the Princess Louise Caroline Alberta (1848–1939), the fourth daughter of Queen Victoria, and the wife of John Campbell, the 9th Duke of Argyll, who was the Governor General of Canada from 1878 to 1883.

Here is a lone Bald Eagle perched on a tree. I took this photograph just before he launched. I think it is a good enough photo as it is.

Rhodesian Ridgeback

This includes two photographs of a Rhodesian Ridgeback or the African lion hound. In one, he is sunning himself, gazing into the sun and in the other; he is galloping and frolicking in the ocean. I feel as if he is dreaming of playing in the waters.

Eagle Eyes

This is a photograph I took in the Interlake area of Manitoba, Canada. I would like to thank David Elliott Atwell for driving me around and letting me take such great photographs. Without him, these beautiful eagles would not be captured with their striking eyes, golden beaks and white heads.
