Meredith is an award winning contemporary landscape artist and graduate of the National Art School, Sydney.

An avid bush walker, Meredith is inspired by the drama and diversity of the region which has provided her with a rich source of inspiration.

The cool temperate rainforests, sandstone canyons and waterways of the region have been reoccurring themes throughout her work. Immersing herself in the landscape collecting site specific field research to incapsulate her  thematic visual narratives.The initial responses made in pencil and watercolour may then undergo further conceptual elaboration resulting in larger scale works in conte pastel and oil.
