Mary Meehan Firtl received her BFA in painting from the Herron School of Art with a minor in printmaking. She is a charter member of the Northern Indiana Pastel Society.
As a former courtroom sketch artist she still continues the habit of working quickly, capturing the essence of scenery experienced on her travels, or focusing on more detailed work such as a still life or animal that sparked the need to paint in pastel. Mary works as a Senior Graphic Designer at Saint Mary’s College in Notre Dame, IN. Her paintings are available through CircaArts Gallery in South Bend, IN.
