Mary Jane Piccuirro

West Hurley, NY

My Inspiration comes from nature and the spiritual aspects of several primitive cultures, combined to form my unique style. My, one-of-a-kind masks, are made from recycled paper Mache that I sculpt much as one works with clay. When dry, they are sanded primed and painted black. I stare at the mask for hours before I see what has to be done. Then the magical fun begins. I paint the mask and embellish it to create the look it seems to want, often evolving into elaborate ornamentation.
