Mary Whyte is an artist and author whose work has earned interntional recognition. She is the recipient of the Portrait Society of America's Gold Medal and the Elizabeth O'Neill Verner Award, South Carolina's highest honor in the arts. Her works are in the collection of the Gibbes Museum of Art and have been exhibited widely both in the United States and throughout Europe and Asia.
