Teacher, wife, mother, grandmother - ARTIST.
Merle started her journey ‘The Art of Insight’ through
a dream to share with others the way art talks to us.
It is unfolding through her love of sharing her knowledge
of personal growth and its links.
Merle was a Primary School teacher
for 34 years, but did not teach art. Her pathway evolved through
her interest in spiritual art. The more she drew the more in touch
she became with how the pictures told a story. Feelings and information
evolved as the picture took shape.
Symbolism expanded, pictures became more complex and messages
more explicit. Merle was able to feel what was to be drawn, see
shapes within lines and shadows. She learned that the pictures
moved from the past, to the present, to the future. The energy
from each picture was individual as stories unfolded. This process
is shared in Merle’s art classes, workshops and readings.
