Award winning artist Mary Kinzel Means has been creating as long as she can remember. Some of her earliest memories were watching her Grandfather, artist Henry Kinzel, in his studio. “My Grandfather’s studio was mesmerizing, full of odds and ends, paintings strewn everywhere, the air thick with the smell of turpentine,... I was in awe!". After studying art and psychology at the University of Tennessee, she headed to Atlanta as an art consultant where she has been a successful gallerist for over thirty years. Mary’s focus for the past few years has been figurative sculpture in mixed media ceramics.
