ARTIST STATEMENT

Merrill Weber is a native Floridian who has called the beautiful Southeastern Pennsylvania countryside home for the past 25 years. Forever an artist at heart, Merrill has joyfully embraced the opportunity to paint daily in recent years after dedicating nearly three decades to raising her son with classic autism. Seeing the world through his eyes has challenged Merrill to communicate feelings of joy and delight without words, and inspires her to create vibrant imagery bursting with sensations of buoyancy, color, movement and harmony. 

Merrill's paintings represent the place where her love of life’s small pleasures and her passion for painting intersect. She is determined to bring more beauty and happiness into the daily lives of others through her art. Drawing inspiration from everyday living, her engaging work has been described as imaginative, playful and filled with energy and hope. Merrill's goal in painting is to create a conversation with the viewer via her canvas, allowing her to preserve and share in the joy of the moment.
