Mary Hanrahan Biography

Mary Hanrahan's Bio & Artist's Statement: I am definitely a mixed-media and collage artist. I was collecting snippets of ephemera all my life and not knowing why. Then in 2010, I was accepted to the Vermont College of Fine Arts Design program for my MFA, graduating in 2013. During my research and making I was able to study my process. My process is basically the letting go of all the ephemera into a new, mixed-media piece. The nostalgia of holding on to memorabilia was weighing me down. So, by repurposing the ephemera I am able to give new life, and a new design to the collected imagery. 

Ms. Hanrahan has over twenty years' experience in the advertising and design with a strong love of organization and project management in both professional and higher educational environments. Her BFA from The University of New Mexico is in printing making and photography. She studied at Tamarind Institute of Lithography as a technical assistant after graduating in 1986. She currently lives and works in Taos, New Mexico with her husband, but travels to Ireland a lot for creative inspiration. She also returns each April and October to Vermont College of Fine Arts to assistant graduate students with their exhibition installation during the 10-day design residencies. 


She has a BFA in print, graphic design and photography from the University of New Mexico and over 32 postgraduate hours in advertising and computer design from Colorado State University in Fort Collins. She has extensive experience in the communications industry and project coordination having worked in newspapers, translation companies, advertising agencies, professional print studios and universities. She currently holds a current position as the Communication Coordinator for the University of New Mexico Prevention Research Center and she will be attending the Vermont College of Fine Arts this Fall 2011 working towards her MFA in Graphic Design.
