"There’s no greater feeling than to know that something you’ve created can bring someone joy."

- Mary-Ann

I love the idea of taking my love of painting to others in the comfort of their home or any other space that brings out their creative spirit. It’s so great to see how creative everyone can be, even when they think they’re not. Come along on this journey of painting, drawing, artful lettering, and whatever else may come our way. You just never know what we might find to do or where we may end up.


I have long been a maker of things, in my family it was just the norm. Dad was always building something from wood and Mom sewed and knit a lot of our clothing when we were young. There was also Granny and Nanny who were great makers as well. So, as you can imagine, the making of things seems to run in my blood. It is the best part of my day when I have the opportunity to retreat to my own space and create things.


Mary-Ann LeClair

I’m a northerner, born and raised in Sudbury, Ontario. I have loved art ever since I was very young. All kinds of art. Paint, paper, pen and ink, markers, pencil crayons, all types of tools on all types of surfaces.
Not only do I love to create art, I love to share the experience with others. In 2014 I added Connect & Create Mobile Painting Parties to my business. It started off with canvas paintings and now you can do wood signs, painted paddles, tote bags and pillows at your parties. 

My passion for art

There’s nothing greater than the joy of seeing someone’s face when they create a beautiful piece of art they never even imagined they could produce. That first experience has opened up the creativity in so many people and I’m proud to have been part of their new found adventure.

So, think of creating art as an adventure into the great unknown. There are many paths to choose from and you just never know where they may lead. Try a few different paths and savour all that each will have to offer. After all, "You never know what you can do unless you try” - Unknown
