On Wednesday, June 22, 2011, Mary Northmore, a guardian angel who resides in Bali, will visit Buckingham Palace in London for her investiture as a Member of the Order of the British Empire.

The widowed-wife of the great Indonesian artist Abdul AzizMuch, Mary is much-loved and respected in her decades-long home of Bali as the creator of the Seniwati Gallery of Art for by Balinese women artists and as the founder of a Senyum Bali Foundation.

Mary’s work since 2005 with the Yayasan Senyum Bali is what has earned her an invitation for an audience with the Queen. The Bali Smiles Foundation provides critically important surgical procedures for Indonesian people suffering from cranial-facial deformities, performed by dedicated Indonesian and Australian medical teams.

Expressing his delight on Mary Northmore’s recognition with  MBE Honors, the British Ambassador to Indonesia, Martin Hatfull, said: “Mary has made a major contribution to the health, happiness and quality of life of many disadvantaged people in Bali and neighboring areas of Nusa Tenggara through Yayasan Senyum Bali’ (The Smile Foundation Bali), which she founded in 2005."
