Mary Elizabeth Dutko (Meko) is a free-spirited native of the CT shoreline and lifelong craftswoman. Meko’s career as one of Connecticut’s premier floral designers dates back to the 1980’s. She has been a certified instructor in the craft of Art Clay Silver and a versatile artisan working in numerous other media as diverse as glass, metal, clay, watercolor and felting to name a few.

With a degree in graphic design combined with a unique sense for color, balance and texture, Meko has been described by her colleagues as “being able to see in colors the rest of us can’t see.”  Using this confluence of talents is the inspiration provided by the beauty of the Connecticut River Valley and its environs. She has used an artist’s eye and her unparalleled perspective to create the truly one-of-a-kind photography of what the Algonquian’s called “The Land of The Long Tidal River.”

Meko is also the artistic-design and marketing force behind the CT Board of Chefs, where her and her husband Marc are the creators of the area’s most highly sought -after, durable, heirloom-quality, artisanal cutting boards and woodenware for the kitchen.

Meko’s photography is currently exhibited at Spectrum Gallery in Centerbrook, Connecticut.  Her photography and her husband Marc’s woodworking is currently available in select retail shops along the CT River Valley.
