 Mary Ann Archer

Being born an artist is a very special gift from the Universe. I believe creativity is the result of Divine Inspiration and when we use our gifts we are guided on a path of self discovery of our unique identities in ways that often surprises ourselves.

In 2000 she opened her first retail store in northern Michigan, returning full circle to where she began after living and maintaining her studio in Santa Fe New Mexico for 29 years.

Personalized customer service, original paintings and wearable jewelry designs of quality craftsmanship are the foundations of her business. “Wearable jewelry is paramount for me because no matter how fantastic the design or technique employed, if it isn’t comfortable, it ends up sitting in a drawer somewhere.”

My paintings express the beauty I see in the world with color, design and insight and ask the viewer to have a look, through ad artists’ eyes.

Mary Ann earned a Bachelor of Fine Art and a Master of Fine Art from Michigan State University in painting and printmaking. A jewelry class pulled her beyond the studio and she has remained accomplished as a painter as well as a jeweler throughout her career. She continued her studies in Florence, Italy, Provence, France, the University of Arizona, Tucson, and in Santa Fe, New Mexico where she lived for 29 years.
