Elizabeth Merriman completed her BA (Hons) in Fine Art at Canterbury College of Art and followed this with a post-graduate higher diploma at the Slade School of Fine Art where her work was shortlisted for the Barclays Young Painter award.
Her work has featured in several London galleries with work now in a number of private and corporate collections including Unilever’s.
Now living and working in East Anglia, Elizabeth’s work has also been shown at galleries in Norfolk, Suffolk and Yorkshire.
Elizabeth develops her ideas through a number of techniques, progressing from pencil to the creation of works in oil.
“My new work is inspired by the age old tradition of still-life. Starting to paint small compositions of Winter and now Spring flowers in favourite jugs and pots, pushing them to various degrees of abstraction to allow each painting its own feeling and atmosphere, while also drawing upon the daily weather conditions.
The sense of colour used in each composition is very important to me and often dictates the beginning of a painting, however, sometimes this is only to be obliterated later on and the final painting can be much changed over a period of time.”
