Mary Tanguay Webb - I am a painter and a writer (Fishtrap Fellow),

a community activist, a former VISTA volunteer, an art collector, an avid gardener, a dyed in the wool Astoriaphile and a grandmother. My husband and I live in Union Town where we both have studios.

I studied Art at the University of Oregon and at Portland State (my mentor being Richard Muller.) I taught in the Artists-in the-Schools program in Portland and my work is in several public institutions including the University of Portland and Wells Fargo Bank as well as in private collections.

I have a broad appreciation and interest in Art and that is reflected in the wide spectrum of work I produce from abstract collages to expressionistic portraits. I am a fan of conceptual Art and a supporter of community Art.

I do portraits upon commission and can be reached at
