About the Artist

Mary Pratt was born in 1935 in Fredericton, New Brunswick. As a fine arts student at Mount Allison University, Pratt was mentored by Alex Colville and in her second year met her future husband Christopher Pratt. Mary Pratt’s work represented a snapshot of a woman’s domestic life, creating highly realistic and dramatic still life works that were inspired by her surroundings. In 1996, she became a Companion of the Order of Canada, and in 2013 she became a member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts. Pratt passed away in Newfoundland in August of 2018.
