Mary Neighbour

Some call Mary E. Neighbour a “book shepherd,” though Mary wields a blue pencil far more expertly than a herding rod. For the past ten years, she and her husband have helped dozens of writers bring their manuscripts to the marketplace, through MediaNeighbours, their publishing services business.

Passionate about helping authors make their work shine in the world, with a combined professional expertise of over 50 years in editing and design, this family team is one you’ll want to adopt as your guide through the challenging world of independent publishing.

Mary’s other passion is learning about the history of slavery and how it impacts race relations today. She incorporated much of her research into her novel, Speak Right On: Conjuring the Slave Narrative of Dred Scott.

Andrew Neighbour

Born in England in the early fifties, the son of a watercolorist, I initially chose a path of science, immersing myself in the natural world as a biologist, zoologist, and eventually a medical research scientist—though along the way, art was a constant companion, chiefly in the form of photography. During my college years, I found time to specialize in photojournalism and commercial photography. My career path, however, was distinctly in biomedical research and business. For the 25 years following university, I only used a camera recreationally.

Soon after I reached forty, I returned to art, taking numerous classes in drawing and painting at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, mastering techniques in figurative art and portraiture using OILS, PASTELS, and a variety of drawing materials. Much of my painting during those years borrowed from all that I knew about photography. As I branched out and explored more impressionistic styles and techniques, I returned to PHOTOGRAPHY as a medium for expression and as a source of inspiration for painting and digital imagery. I applied my aptitude for computers and technology to my artistic endeavors, using the computer as an aid and stimulus for painting and creating works in the exciting, new, hybrid genre of DIGITAL PAINTING.

In 2005, I retired from a career in business development and administration in order to pursue my art full time. Now I live in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where I have been a freelance commercial photographer for the past nine years. Most recently I have begun a journey into independent film making and videography.

Throughout it all, my innate inquisitiveness about the wonders of living things and my exploration of the interplay of life, light, and perception now emerge and combine in my new-found vocation in the visual arts.
