Mary's career has been dedicated to the exploration of abstract form though painting and printmaking. This exhibition catalogue supporting Mary Webb's exhibition, Journeys in Colour contains images of more than 60 of Mary's paintings, along with a collection of screen prints, drawings and collages including the series of paintings that were inspired by her time spent abroad in Utah.

A pupil of the late Sonia Delaunay, Mary's works are consistently square in shape and exist as an arrangement of vivid squares and rectangles. The 71-year-old artist admits that "colour is [her] main concern”, which accounts for the vibrancy of her work, but she also explains that she strives to avoid "having a centre, or part of the picture that claims attention more than the rest”.
