MJ (Mary Jane) Turan
Mary Jane Turan was born and raised in Yellville
Arkansas and retired there after 30 years in the
medical profession. She lives on the same family
property she was raised on and treasures living in the
Arkansas mountains near lakes and water. She
raised two sons and did all the things families do.
Hobbies and interests include painting, sewing,
quilts, photography, antiques (old houses, barns, and
collectibles), music, opera, reading and would like to
travel the world with life long classmates who are all
still close friends.
Art instruction began in pastels and oils after assurance and encouragement from the instructor, family and art
friends. My mentor, Henry Ratliff, shared his knowledge and vast art library further inspiring me. After her family,
painting became the most enjoyable activity in her life and remains so. She has been a member of the Palette
Art League for 20 + years and is passionate about the "Gallery".
