Mary "Kitty" Weeks
When she was only two years old, Mary N. Weeks (also known as Kitty) was diagnosed with lazy eye. As one one of the ways to work through this problem, her mother would have her play in paints as a sort of therapy. Little did they know that the therapy would turn out to be more of a therapy for her soul. Ever since her toddler days, Mary has had paint under her fingernails, and thankfully she is sharing with the rest of us.
She studied fine arts with emphasis in painting and drawing at University of North Alabama, and graduated with a degree in communication graphics in the mid-80's. After having an uninspired day at her easel in 1989, She came to Victor's place to unwind. That was where she met her future hunsband, Rob, and they married that same yaer. In 1995 their twin daughters, Tori and Sarah, were born.
She describes her artwork with this simple phrase- Beyond the Boundaries. It came from that fact that she could never stay in lines when coloring. Now it is evident in her body of work and all aspects of her life. The last thing one could do to her is put one specific label on her or her art, and that is a most fabulous thing. When asked why she signs her work "M.N. Weeks" and not "Kitty", she will tell you that is who God knows.
Isaiah 43:1- But now, this is what the LORD says-
He who created you, O Jacob,
He who formed you, O Isreal:
"Fear not, for I have redeemed you;
I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
