Mary A. Schultz-Williams, BFA., MA.
Registered Psychotherapist, Art & Aroma Therapist
Mary has created art most of her life, studying many forms of creative expression from drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture and gem-art jewelry to dance, music and performance art. She was first introduced to beeswax as a painting medium in 1994 while interning with three painters in New York City, which inspired a large body of work that served as a deep exploration into art as therapy. After receiving her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Visual Arts from Albion College in 1996, Mary has shared her work in numerous group and individual art exhibitions in Michigan, Arizona and Colorado.
In 2003 Mary moved to Boulder, Colorado to attend graduate school at Naropa University and began her work at the Essense Studio, studying aroma-art and practicing aromatherapy. In 2006, she earned her Master of Arts degree in Transpersonal Counseling: Art Therapy. Mary has worked with parents, women, children and families at a local non-profit community center. She continues her career as a multi-media artist and as a registered psychotherapist, specializing in art therapy, while co-creating Living Creative Wellness holistic therapies in partnership with her husband, Brenyn, licensed acupuncturist and practitioner of Oriental medicine. Currently, Mary evolves further as a mother to her son and daughter.
