My friend Elizabeth Merriman is currently exhibiting a series of new paintings at Salthouse Church on the North Norfolk coast in a show entitled 'The Orchard'.
Simon and I were pleased to show Elizabeth's paintings in the first solo exhibition we hosted at our former North Norfolk gallery ten years or so ago.
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.
'The Orchard' is open until Sunday 7th August at Salthouse Church (from 11am until 5.30pm). If you'd like to know more about the paintings, please e-mail Simon via firstname.lastname@example.org
We're hoping to exhibit Elizabeth's paintings in an exhibition in Edinburgh in 2017 - sign up for the St Jude's newsletter to find out more.
