I am an Artist, Poet, Author and Coach, inspired by nature, with a passion for solitary walks in the wild

We live in an ephemeral space, where endings and goodbyes are a constant certainty, and beauty and glory are its brilliant, fleeting stars.

Mary Ann Burrows

I specialize in the healing and transformational power of creativity,  journaling, and expressive writing. I am a poet, a published author, and an artist.  I am a graduate of Martha Beck’s Wayfinder Life Coaching Program (2019) and Advanced Creativity Coaching at the Creativity Coaching Association USA. (2017/18), I am also currently enrolled in the Creative Writing University degree program (2021), as a part-time student.  I studied painting for over 20 years and have taken too many art courses and workshops on technique and color theory in all of the mediums to count. Most importantly, I have spent years at my art table playing, creating, and learning. I have spent my life as a creator and going through the creative process. I have sold many pieces throughout Canada and the United States, and also given many away as gifts to friends, family, and charities for auction.

I guess you could say that I’m a philanthropist with a love for the Forest and youth. I am a proud contributor and supporter of Take a Hike Foundation through my private family foundation -the Burrows Foundation. 

Here are a few other things I have done along the way. In addition to these ‘things’, I have also owned a marketing company and designed garden products for stores across Canada.

What brings me the most joy these days is writing. I write daily and I am always working on one or two book projects, and have a few others brewing in my mind.
