I began reflecting on my future plans during lockdown, after working full time & raising 4 children and now four grandchildren (so far). I needed something to give me inspiration & get as much out of life as possible, my Art. My late Father Terence Merrick was also a artist who had won The wildlife art society’s gold medal award in 1999. So I guess my influence has definitely rubbed off on me . The future plans for me are to give as much time as possible to painting & express the power & dynamics of Art through all subjects & a mix of Oils pastels & acrylics .
