Meredith Gabel Harris Art, Davidson, NC
Meredith was born and raised in Florida. She graduated from Davidson College with a BA in Psychology and from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with an MA in Counseling. Meredith currently lives and paints in Davidson, North Carolina.
Inspired by impressionist and post-impressionist painters, Meredith is interested in light, shadows, and the changing colors throughout the day. Meredith’s love of Florida and the Southeast coast shows in her paintings. She draws inspiration from growing up in Florida, family time spent at the beach and on the marsh in South Carolina, and travels abroad. Her offspring tease her for always pointing out things she notices in nature!
Meredith predominantly uses a palate knife in her acrylic paintings and layers paints to create a thick surface. Her acrylic paintings focus on landscapes, the peaceful intracoastal waterways, the Low Country, and her love of travel. She captures the details and quirks of nature in her watercolors, mainly focusing on still life.
