About the Artist

Sister Mary Bertoli,
artist and storyteller

Sr. Mary is the creator of the nationally recognized Spirit of Mississippi series of original tissue paper artworks, greeting cards and prints. She lives and has her studio in Portland, Oregon.

Sr. Mary was invited to minister in Mississippi in September, 1991. She joined other religious Sisters who had been in the Delta area for about 10 years, opening health clinics, working in education centers and responding to the needs in small towns all over northern Mississippi. Her experiences there significantly impacted her life and artwork.

We have her prints available from a large collection of her originals, as well as the full line of her greeting cards. We are also very pleased to announce her newest offering, the book, "Catching the Spirit of Mississippi's Ms. Rosie" which features wonderful stories illustrated by Sr. Mary's own artwork.
