Mary McCulloch, MA has been practicing art since childhood, when she found the way to express herself from the deeper places of her soul. From an early age, Mary saw her world from the language of archetypes. When doll making came into her life as an adult, this was a natural medium to marry her unique array of skill-sets and interests. Mary’s dolls have been finding their way into art shows both online and in galleries, as well as having a steady base of commissioned work. Her commissions involve a process of channeling an energy or spirit forward, working in an organic way. She engages with the Mystery in this process; not always certain what the finished piece will be, or what she will be required to learn! Her one of a kind work is all done by hand, with repurposed materials as much as possible.
Mary is devoted to a life of service as an Ordained Minister of Prayer through the Center for Sacred Studies in Northern California, where she held various positions including Director of the Ministry Training Program, Maitri Breathwork Facilitator, Board Secretary, and Registrar for their Stargate Mystery School. With extensive study of earth based teachings and transpersonal counseling, Mary seeks to express her holistic worldview through the use of art as a vehicle for healing and transformation. Her journey of discovery in this lifetime has led her to practice the healing arts with those in major life transitions and at end of life. She currently resides in Evanston, Illinois, with a heart home in Empire, Michigan.
