Personal Art

Mary Blair is most associated with her Disney art and accomplishments (namely Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan and It's a Small World). However, it is her personal art that she did for family, friends, and special occasions that we would like to, now, also share with the world -- projects done for fun, fancy and pure pleasure -- Mary Blair without limits!! We hope you enjoy this unique collection of art as we have all our lives. It is our fondest wish that people everywhere will see in Mary's art what Walt Disney saw nearly seventy-five years ago.
