Oil, Acrylic and Pastel Paintings
Art shows what the heart sees. In a world filled with color, texture, light and shadow, it is a privilege to be able to pass on even just one moment on this awesome planet. Layer on layer, I take the viewer from where he stands into the distance of hills and sky, all dressed up in atmosphere, deep shadow, and warm light.
My husband Dan and I started the art supply store, The Merri Artist, about 12 years ago after visiting a small art supply store on vacation. I decided once my two children grew up I would start painting in earnest and found I enjoy painting in all mediums But I was disappointed with the big stores that catered mostly to crafts. I was frustrated with not being able to touch brushes. When we moved to McMinnville there were no art stores. That lead to opening The Merri Artist. I love new products because we get to test-drive them and choose the best. And I never tire of hearing folks call it their "candy store".
