Merian is passionate about her art and she continues mixing colors, innovating and looking for new challenges.
She says her inspiration is often found from images in her dreams. She also finds artistic vision after being captivated by a situation, place, people or culture.
"My mind naturally translates what I think, feel, smell, or sense into vibrant images," Merian explains.
Quoting N.I. Lobachersky, she notes that 'To live is to feel, to enjoy, being constantly aware of the new and that reminds us we are alive.'
Merian believes that even a grain of sand or a tiny snow flake is full of the divine.
She says, "The simple things in nature are full of genius and infinite source of inspiration to me.God is the creator of beauty, and as His child, I have just a minuscule glimpse of it.
I believe my art shifts the energy in its environment. My objective is to challenge the viewer to a higher level of freedom and boldness while at the same time infusing serenity and balance."
