Mary-Lynne Stadler


Born in New York, USA, raised in East Africa and educated in England, she finally fulfilled a lifelong ambition to study art once her children left home. It began with A Level art at the local Secondary School in 1995, followed by a Creative Arts Degree from Bath Spa University College in 2001, then a Research Fellowship in Stone Lithography. In 2003 she came to Cyprus to pursue a Postgraduate Diploma in Fine Art at the Cyprus College of Art in Lemba. Following that she spent four months working with artists in Central America, before returning to Cyprus to paint a mural commission and landscape a garden.

From 2006 until 2011 she lived and worked in the village of Kallepia near Pafos, where she had a successful working Studio and offered tuition and workshops. In February 2012 she moved into the heart of Cyprus' thriving port city, Limassol, where she have established a new Studio and once again offer tuition and workshops.

In previous, pre-artist lives, she spent fifteen years running her own homeopathic practice in Dorset, was married, had children, lived, worked and travelled across five continents and was variously employed in journalism, freelance writing, publishing and teaching.
