Mary Meyer creates mixed media works that investigate how the human form impacts, and is mirrored within, the natural world. Her practice is driven by an interest in ecology, biodiversity, anatomical structures, and the intuitive study of form. She is strongly influenced by a background in traditional stone carving, and uses meditative processes and materials to explore stillness, connection, and the physicality that is slowly diminishing from daily life. She has exhibited her work at venues such as Phoenix Art Museum, Tucson Museum of Art, Phoenix International Airport, and Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum.

Meyer is a recipient of the Pat Mutterer Award presented at the 2020 Arizona Biennial. She is also a recipient of the Phoenix Art Museum's Contemporary Forum Artist Grant, and has been recognized as one of Arizona’s 100 Creatives by Phoenix New Times. She has served as a Faculty Associate at Arizona State University and Scottsdale Community College, and has taught workshops for the Visions Youth Program through Scottsdale Public Arts. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Arizona State University, and a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Arizona, where she received the MFA Fellowship. Her work is represented in public and private collections nationally and internationally.
