About Me

Welcome to my website, my name is Mary Victoria Smiley, but I have been “Torrie” my entire life and now sign and certify my work by just the one name.

I am a primarily a self-taught artist who started showing and selling my paintings locally. In November 2005, I joined EBSQart and started selling my paintings on eBay.

I now show and sell my paintings internationally at several websites and local galleries. I have participated in International art shows with EBSQart.com, ArtistsEmerge.com, and International Artist’s Magazine. My work is collected throughout the United¬†States, Europe, Canada, and Australia.

My paintings are usually simple in composition with the goal to create something pleasing to the eye, that may make you smile.  I try to keep my paintings affordable to the collectors on a budget who would like to have original artwork in their home. If you have any questions, just send me a note. I would be happy to work with you if you would like something created specifically to fit your needs.

Please visit my website regularly for links to my blog with news of what I am working on in the studio and upcoming events.

Thank you for visiting and enjoy the art!
