Mary Wachtel Puppets
I began my work with puppets with the Patchwork Puppet Company which three of us formed in 1977. Performing "Puppets in the Parks" shows in city parks and shows in other places led me to an interest in making puppets for other people, to sort of spread the fun around. I began finding patterns and making puppets to sell at craft fairs. Some people who saw them asked me if they could get special orders, such as puppets that looked like the pictures in a particular book. I have been creating special puppets for 26 years now and the challenge is still there.
First, let me say, it is an honor sharing my artwork with you!
As a young adult, I became fascinated with watercolors, mainly due to the illusion and softness created when water, paper and paint conspired to do their magic together!
I attended classes with amazing teachers, such as Rene Newman and Hazel Foley. Then, the paints were “placed on a shelf” for several decades while I focused on raising my children and a career in the medical field.
It wasn’t until a move to the Boise area in 2001 which brought with it some idle time that the paints came back out. I met my wonderful artist friend and mentor, Roberta Chism (who, we discovered quite by accident, had ties to Missoula as well!). With her encouragement and tutelage, I began to perfect my style of painting.
I joined the Idaho Watercolor Society and the Nampa Art Guild, enabling me to paint beside world class artists, take numerous workshops, and participate in juried art shows.
I returned “home” to Missoula in 2011. Along with full-time work, back in the medical field, and a flower garden design business, I still managed to pursue my passion for painting watercolors. I have recently rejoined the Montana Watercolor Society.
I am the proud mother of a son who resides in Meridian, Idaho, with his wife and my oldest granddaughter, and a daughter who lives in Missoula with her husband, my grandson and youngest granddaughter.
My family and friends never cease to motivate and inspire me, and for that I am forever grateful. My three incredible grandchildren keep me “busy” and, as I tell them quite often, they “make my heart sing”.

Lost and found, wasted yet wanted, odd yet necessary, bits of life and culture made into things that are fun, stimulate memories and give us pause. I take bits and pieces of everyday like and make one-of-a-kind keepsake art.
My love for collage started when I was very young. I would collect things from Mother Nature and make my own little Nature Treasures.
My art form really took shape when I inherited my Grandmother's button box. Inside this old tin I found not only buttons. There were perm rods, garters and bits of costume jewelry. I've always been an avid junker and find delight in ordinary objects from everyday life. I love old costume jewelry, stuff from dad's workbench, and small bits from the junk drawer. I work with discarded rusty nails, bolts and even the occasional spark plug! Truth be known,..I spend a lot of time looking at the street or parking lot below my feet. I use these items to collage keepsake boxes, frames, crosses, furniture and other decorative items. Most of my materials are reclaimed, including the vessels I use for my collage motifs.
My collages are very intricate and detailed. My hope is that when my work is seen, you see something hiding you hadn’t noticed before.
