An artist who enjoys painting images of businesses, parks and other buildings in Zanesville is Zaap's artist of the month.
Mary Ann Bucci's work will be featured as part of March's first Friday. Bucci's been painting her entire life, but started sharing it with the public after her kids went to college.
Many pieces will be for sale Friday and will be available in affordable print versions. An exciting part of this display is a lot of new work.
"I am about a lot of variety. If someone says have you painted this yet I may do it right away so it is a big variety. There are some new things that are fruits and vegetables," said Bucci.
Bucci used her talent to explore other avenues. She is often inspired by the grandchildren she baby sits so when asked to illustrate a children's book called Bailey Bunny and the Fear Monster she said Yes.
"I have enjoyed so much doing it and now we both are thrilled that the community is real excited about it," said Bucci.
Bucci is proud the book and the bunny stuffed animal will be made in the USA.
