After leaving high school, Engelbreit went straight to work at an art supply shop. Moving on from the store she was offered a role at a small ad agency. While working here she also showcased some of her work at independent art exhibitions.

While this was a good start, Mary really wanted to be a children's book illustrator. She began taking her portfolio to a number of publishers but her work was not that well received. However, one art director suggested that she should try greeting cards.
