You will notice a few abstract pieces amongst Meredith's collection as she uses colours from her landscape paintings in loose freed up moments.
"Inspired by the beauty of landscape worldwide, I try to give the landscape paintings a dramatic feel, drawing the viewer into the painting. I want you to feel you are within the painting and feel the cool depths, the power charge of a incoming storm, the warmth of the sun, or the salt in the ocean air"
