About Margaret Merry

I grew up in Falmouth, Cornwall, England where, after leaving Falmouth High School, I spent a year at Falmouth School of Art. Then followed three years at Hornsey College of Art in London where I obtained a Diploma in Art and Design. I then spent a post-graduate year at the West of England College of Art in Bristol where I gained an Art Teacher?s Diploma and a Certificate in Education of the University of Bristol. I lived and worked in Truro for over 30 years and became one of Cornwall's most popular artists. My paintings have been exhibited in New York, Tokyo, Paris and London and have been bought by collectors from all over the world. I have published 4 books which became local bestsellers - 'The Natural History of a Westcountry City', 'Margaret Merry's Cornish Garden Sketchbook', 'Sea & Sail' and 'Tidal Reaches'. In 2002 I moved to Spain and now live pn a small farmer the town of Alhabia in the Alpujarra Almeriense in the Province of Almeria. I now get my inspiration from the dramatic scenery of Andalucia and its old cities, towns and villages which I usually capture in watercolour. I also enjoy portraiture and figurative art, particularly nudes and dancers. For these paintings I use artists' soft pastels. I have written and illustrated 3 children's books - The Wise Old Boar, The Lonely Digger and The Adventure of Princess The Pony - which have been published in the USA.

  1. Your paintings are just lovely Margaret.. just love looking thru them!

    • Hello Marty

      Thank you for your kind comments. I have looked at your interesting blog and we are very pleased that Jo is doing so well with her animal charity. Please give her and Richard our regards.

      I am trying very hard to earn some money out of my art. It was so easy in the UK but almost impossible here. We are concentrating on Granada City at the moment as we think there will be a demand for prints there.

      I expect you noticed that I am running a draw for which the prize is my pastel painting of the Romeria at Salobreña. Anybody who buys a print gets a free entry. Details are on my blog. Please put the word around.

      Best wishes
