Erin Merrill

Painting

Erin Merrill is an artist and educator based in Dothan, AL. While she enjoys creating in all forms, her primary medium is oil on canvas. Her expressive use of color utilizes quick intuitive strokes and layering landscapes of texture using a palette knife. She constructs connections between life experiences, travels, and relationships and represents those links through her energetic process. Influenced by techniques of the impressionists and their bold and rebellious movement against the prevailing perfectionism of the neoclassicists, she focuses on the love of the ever-developing painting process.
