Mary Lynn Engel
Artist and Designer
I love to combine multiple ingredients to see what happens, whether to bake a cake, prepare a dinner for company, or through the arts. My media of choice is the floorcloth, a canvas-backed floor covering used since Revolutionary times. Floorcloths give me the opportunity to create practical custom pieces by combining paint, fabric, paper, ribbon, photographs, and even neckties. The result is a high-quality, handcrafted piece for residential and commercial use that adds excitement to any setting. Adding to its versatility, the piece can also be used as a wall hanging.
I live in Yarmouth, Maine with my husband, dog and cat, and am fortunate to have my own work space as part of my home.
