Joining us again on the Peacock Arts Trail is the incredibly talented Meryl Kelsey Masters who will be exhibiting from her home in Chippenham. Meryl is offering workshops during the Trail – do see our workshops page for more information and contact Meryl for booking.
Meryl’s present work is mainly painting in acrylics, working from sketches and photos taken on travels around the world and at home. Meryl has dabbled in many aspects of art, craft and design over the years, encouraged by her mother who was an art teacher and lifelong painter, embroiderer and dress maker. After studying jewellery design at art school in Birmingham, and then working for Graham Watling in Lacock, Meryl now mainly focuses on 2 dimensional work.
Having now retired, Meryl’s paints in fits and starts as the mood takes her. She has a lovely room in which to work, full of books, materials and music, an also works outside in the sun. Meryl tells us that she couldn’t be without art in her life – “I think in images not words”. Her art is now a hobby for pleasure rather than profit, “though to see a work go to an appreciative home is always welcomed”.
When Meryl is not painting, you can find her gardening, canoeing and sailing.
