Missionary Mary Proctor

Wednesday’s Tallahassee Democrat ran a story about Missionary Mary Proctor having her home and studio vulnerable to being lost due to a $5000 debt to her landlord.

These are some of her pieces that I’ve taken pics of from different art festivals:

A portion of the article reads:

“I haven’t been able to go to shows, because people just aren’t supporting as much as they used to,” Proctor said.

Proctor said she’s made about $8,000 to $10,000 a year within the last years, but she remembers a time when she averaged almost twice as much.

“I’m a minister through art, and tell me how many ministers aren’t needed,” Proctor said. “I’m a visionary because I use my paintings to show people how to live and have inner peace in these times of chaos. I’m in trouble now and I need help from the community.”

Proctor will have an art sale Saturday at her studio located at 3919 Woodville Highway, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

They say that you can reach her at her also at missionarymary —AT— comcast …dot… net
Her official website is here, and although it’s very most likely best to purchase directly from her at this time, she’s also represented (and you can see more pics of her work) here, here, here, and here.
