Take time to look at the beauty which surrounds you.



Mary, also known as Sidehackmary, is an avid photographer and motorcyclist with an educational background in architecture, interior design, fashion design, and fine arts.  Her roots lie in the Red River Valley of North Dakota where she is a fourth generation farmer.  While employment brought her to retail management, construction, and preschool education in eastern North Dakota and northern Alabama, Mary now spends the major part of her time traveling with camera in hand.  Western North Dakota has for years held her in captivation as a beautiful and spiritual place.   Her photo entitled "Winter Reckoning" was chosen as a winner of the 2014 North Dakota Governor's Art Contest.
