in Holden Beach, North Carolina, Mary Paulsen has built a "bottle house"
, multiple houses for more than 6,000 dolls, and a standalone gallery
to showcase the relentlessly colorful paintings she makes on discarded window glass. No surface goes unembellished.
Mary has been the subject of an 11-minute documentary film
and a book, Doing the Vision
. Impressed visitors often photograph the colorful details of her artwork. (Series by Mark Huey
, series by Sherman Hayes
.) She gives a portion of the proceeds from selling her art to Feed the Children
. One recent visitor wonders, "Is it creepy, is it art, or is it both?"
