Initially studying Fine Art and Linguistics at the University of Saskatchewan, Mary Lynn decided to pursue an art-centric education; she found the ideal place at NSCAD University in Halifax, NS, where she graduated with a BFA in Jewellery Design and Metalsmithing in 2012.
Since graduating, Mary Lynn has received a number of accolades. She was awarded first place in the 9th annual National Jewellery Student Competition, hosted by L.A. Pai Gallery in Ottawa, ON, and is a 2013 NICHE Award student winner for excellence in craft design. During the spring & summer of 2013, she represented Saskatchewan in The Canadian Mosaic of Metal in Toronto, ON, was an award recipient in the 30th Biennial Dimensions touring exhibition, and received a Creative Grant from the SK Arts Board to aid in the creation of her newest body of work, Sonance.
