Grace Merritt

My interest in photography started early in life, beginning with Instamatic cameras, and later moving into SLR cameras and the black and white darkroom. I took my first photography class after graduating from college in 1993, and went on to study film photography as a resident at the Maine Photographic Workshops. I also studied digital photography at the Center for Digital Imaging Arts at Boston University.

I draw inspiration for my photography from my love of nature and time spent in the landscapes of New England while growing up. I seek to create and use visual moods to render a unique interpretation of the beauty that I see in the natural world. Taking a photograph is only the beginning of my artistic process. Focusing mainly on landscapes and flowers for subjects, through experimentation I apply layers of textures and tones to my photographs in post-production, creating a collage effect that gives my work a painterly look. Through the use of digital photographs and varied digital applications, programs, and tools, I hope to create and share something for viewers to explore and enjoy.

The creative process has always been a pleasure for me, as well as a way to find resilience in times of adversity. I believe that making art, as well as viewing and appreciating it, allows time for reflection that can be beneficial to both the artist and the observer.
