Detroit-born Mary Coesens Demroske moved to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan at age 34, and studied art at Lake Superior University. She spends the long Michigan winters at the easel, and her summers are spent doing juried shows almost every weekend. She has had one person and combined shows at the Dossin Great Lakes Museum in Detroit, at Lake Superior State University, and on the Michigan State University campus. Her works are also featured in museum, university, private, and corporate collections. "I mostly enjoy painting the Great Lakes freighters and tugs," Mrs. Demroske states, "I'm not a history expert, but have learned a great deal about Great Lakes shipping. It's a fascinating subject, and I enjoy painting the calm scenes as well as using my imagination to create a believable shipwreck and sinking."
