Mary Bel


I am a fine art photographer who finds beauty in darkness. I produce composites and craft bold, emotional, gripping, edgy and dark art images. I create self portraits that look painterly to depict various stories of emotions and concepts of self expression, layered with personal growth. I have a vivid imagination that has evolved by being an observer of my environment. I create images of what I wish or see happening, and manipulate it into my own world through my work as a photographer and story teller.

I have earned my Bachelors and Masters in Arts from Fordham University. I have great admiration for art and expression. As a mother of a teenage son and daughter, I stay very occupied and in my downtime, I enjoy playing in photoshop, riding my bicycle long distances, or sitting under a tree with a good book, yes…even in the Florida heat!
