Morag Thomson Merriman
Morag Thomson Merriman is a Scottish artist, illustrator and printmaker. She is a seeker of stories and a juggler of life and time. For 6 years now, she has been keeping daily visual diaries. These daily drawings are created randomly using mixed media, however the key focus for Morag is to use line to express state of mind (some of her drawings have been described as melancholy). She uses colour to symbolise emotions and fragility. Her drawings are also based on collective observations of people and the natural world, or are derived from her emotional memories, past and present. She is equally fascinated by the atmospheric sense of place associated with older buildings, and their echoes of past lives.
