Meet Mary Doodles, She Doodles on YouTubeJuly 24, 2014 -- Published by Pat Hanavan
A lot of artists do not take advantage of all the wonders of our modern world. The internet provides free services at our disposal that gives anyone the ability to showcase their work for the whole world to see. As more people begin to figure out all of the tools that are at our disposal, the competitive edge grows and great works of art can be completely diluted if not presented in the right way. But then there are those who find a way to stand out from the rest…
Mary Doodles is an artist, actress and maker of things. Merging art and video, her time lapsed paintings on Youtube have drawn an online following of young artists and fans alike. In 2011 she launched her own Youtube channel and quickly built an audience. She was featured by Youtube’s On the Rise program and has since made video art for Disney, Tribeca, and a variety of musicians.
“It’s all about having fun. It doesn’t matter if I’m painting, shooting video or being an idiot on stage in front of friends and horrified strangers. But the coolest thing about making art of any sort is the way it connects people. What I make is not just for me. I want to entertain you, whether you’re peering over my shoulder or loading my picture in your browser. So thank you.” -Mary
