|The Art of Mary Lou
|Mary Lou Troutman was born in 1957 and grew up in the
countryside of Southern Maryland. At an early age she
began expressing her talents and upon graduation from
St. Mary's Academy ( where she won the senior art
achievement award) she attended Maryland College of
Art in Baltimore, Maryland. Between high school and
her first year of college she met a man that would
change her life and career for the better. In the fall of
1977 she married Jeff Troutman, who immediately
recognized her talent for art and took her work to a local
art league where she has been exhibiting ever since.
Mary Lou and Jeff returned to her home town of
Dameron, a small country town located along the
Chesapeake Bay on the southern tip of St. Mary's
From her woodland studio she kept close company with
the abundance of nature which surrounded her. St.
Mary's County with its creeks, marshes, rivers and the
Chesapeake bay provided a never ending and unique
mix of subject matter. Mary Lou has developed a
personal feeling nostalgia for the "way it was" way of life
along the Chesapeake.
Her detailed acrylic painting reflect a strong sense of
light with a realistic touch. Through the years of
recognition, numerous awards and artistic
achievements her work has become apart of both
private and corporate collections that span from coast
