Hi and welcome! I’m Meredith, and painting is more than just a passion, it’s a calling.
I began painting in college after being inspired by poster prints of impressionist masters that hung on the walls of my dorm room. When I had the opportunity to repaint the walls of my room at home, I decided I would shoot for the moon by painting a mural of an Italian seaside village. I’m not quite sure what made me think that my first painting should be a full-sized mural, but it worked out and I haven’t looked back! While my style and medium has evolved from that first scene, that mural remains on the walls as a reminder of how it all began.
Over the years, I have switched to working exclusively in oils as a full-time artist, utilizing both brush work and palette knife. While I love to paint, it is my desire that my work touches those who see it, and that it transports people as it hangs on their wall. I am currently an active member of the ValeArts group (www.valearts.com) that shows twice a year in Oakton, and my work can be found in galleries in North Carolina and Grand Cayman, as well as in homes and commercial buildings in the United States, Europe, the Caribbean, and Australia.
I live outside Washington, DC, with my husband and two children. Besides painting, my passions are pretty simple…God, family, and friends (in that order). If you want to see more, peruse the website, like my Facebook page, Instagram, or Contact me! It would be great to connect!
