About

Meriel May is a professional artist based in Gauteng, South Africa.

Meriel works in a multitude of mediums. After many years of working in water colour, she has now moved into pen-and-wash and more recently into oils. An accomplished artist, she sells her work at annual exhibitions, to interior decorators and by private commission.

A dedicated artist, Meriel began her art career as a textile designer working with Cyril Lord. It is worth noting that Meriel is a master craftsman in the ceramics field, originally tutored by Digby Hoets. Her design experience and her craftsman like approach to mastering the various techniques she enjoys are clearly evident in her works. She has also drawn her inspiration from the likes of Klimt, Whistler, Walter Battiss and Judith Mason.

Meriel bases her approach to her art on premise that “you don’t have to be different to be good, but you do have to be good to be different”-anon.
