About the artist
Meredith discovered her love of illustration while studying as a Graphic Designer at Algonquin College in Ottawa, Ontario. Although a passionate maker of art and craft throughout her childhood and teens, Meredith's time at college established her drive to become a professional artist. Since graduating, she has continued independent studies with artists in the Ottawa region. Meredith works in a variety of media including linocut and monotype printmaking; watercolour, oil, and acrylic paint; air dry clay; coloured pencil and pen. Meredith's work is heavily influenced by her passion for environmental stewardship. At her home in Kemptville, Ontario, she is surrounded by fields, wetlands, and forests. Here, she observes the daily and seasonal patterns of plants, birds, and wildlife that populate nearby ecosystems. Meredith's objective as an artist is to encourage viewers to build more personal connections with their regional biosphere. When she isn't making art, Meredith spends her time raising her young daughter and enjoying the outdoors with her family.
