About Margaret Merry

I grew up in Falmouth, Cornwall, England where, after leaving Falmouth High School, I spent a year at Falmouth School of Art. Then followed three years at Hornsey College of Art in London where I obtained a Diploma in Art and Design. I then spent a post-graduate year at the West of England College of Art in Bristol where I gained an Art Teacher?s Diploma and a Certificate in Education of the University of Bristol. I lived and worked in Truro for over 30 years and became one of Cornwall's most popular artists. My paintings have been exhibited in New York, Tokyo, Paris and London and have been bought by collectors from all over the world. I have published 4 books which became local bestsellers - 'The Natural History of a Westcountry City', 'Margaret Merry's Cornish Garden Sketchbook', 'Sea & Sail' and 'Tidal Reaches'. In 2002 I moved to Spain and now live pn a small farmer the town of Alhabia in the Alpujarra Almeriense in the Province of Almeria. I now get my inspiration from the dramatic scenery of Andalucia and its old cities, towns and villages which I usually capture in watercolour. I also enjoy portraiture and figurative art, particularly nudes and dancers. For these paintings I use artists' soft pastels. I have written and illustrated 3 children's books - The Wise Old Boar, The Lonely Digger and The Adventure of Princess The Pony - which have been published in the USA.

    I really like the abstract twist of lilies and carp and wondered how it has been achieved? Jo

    • Hi Jo
      Thanks for the kind comment
      I cannot quite remember exactly but I am sure I would have used HDR toning, reduced the sharpness, boosted vibrance and saturation, posterized and then in filter/distort twirled. All in photoshop
      Best wishes

        Thanks Digby. You probably don’t remember Rob and I – we first came to Las Negras in 1988 with our 2 sons and still visit the area at least once per year. This summer we are staying for 2 weeks then returning in September/ October for a month. We really enjoy your pictures, especially the light as this winter has been terribly cold and dull this year.

        Best, Jo.
