  • About

    Mary Macqueen was born in Melbourne and studied drawing under George Bell 1946-47 and printmaking at RMIT 1956-58. She began making prints on a press converted from an old mangle. From 1943-57 she exhibited with the Victorian Artists' Society and from 1960-64 with the Contemporary Art Society; she was included in their 'First Australia-wide graphic art exhibition' in 1960. Macqueen is best known for her drawings and lithographs, especially of animals.
