UPwithART 2019 - APRIL 27

Meredith Milton

Artist Bio:

Meredith attended her first opening when she was a few weeks old and she grew up drawing and colouring across the desk from her artist father. After the Bealart program, she continued her education at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University (NSCAD) in Halifax and was awarded a Bachelor of Fine Art in Film and Art History. She has recently returned to the London area and is employed by The Art Exchange and Attic Books. Meredith is currently renewing her own art practice in printmaking and watercolour.

Artist Statement:

Meredith’s other love is animals, particularly horses. During high school she completed over 500 hours of volunteer service at the Special Abilities Riding Institute. The white mare featured in the
piece is based on the notorious “Fanny”, a small and spunky draft-cross pony at SARI. As she is participating for the second time, Mere explored the basic artistic elements of shape, composition and colour so one’s eye is drawn around the wine label produced.
