Mary T Smith is a Folk Artist from Mississippi. In her primitive paintings, Smith used pieces of tin, scraps of plywood, scrap-metal sheets or other found materials. She worked with bold brush strokes, usually in one or two primary colors. Most of her paintings are figurative of animals or portraits, in a simple, child-like style, sometimes incorporating words or letters. Smith's lively figures are often depicted with both hands raised to heaven.
