About the presenter : Mary Wright

Mary Wright is a published artist at DAZ 3D known as Quixotry. She’s an accomplished DAZ Studio portrait-maker, with a fantasy edge and has developed a series of characters and pose sets sold in her DAZ 3D store.

She grew up surrounded by beautiful paintings. Her father, Thomas Baker, is a master oil painter specializing in portraiture. It was his talent, teaching, and encouragement that led her to begin developing her own artistic abilities. Mary discovered Daz Studio while looking for an affordable program that would allow her to learn about the world of 3D art. Recognizing it as a useful tool for figure reference, illustration, and book cover creation, she added it to her workflow and found that pairing 3D renders with postwork in Photoshop opened up a world of exciting artistic possibilities. On top of being a digital artist, Mary is a freelance editor, voracious reader, and lover of the written word. She lives in New Mexico with her husband Brandon and their cat, Bagheera.
