Madeline Gardner Meryash
Award winning artist, Madeline Gardner Meryash, grew up in a suburb of Boston, Massachusetts in a large artistic family. The sixth of fourteen children, she began painting in earnest in the late 1990ís and has never looked back. Largely self-taught, she has studied with classically trained artists through Grand Central Atelier in NYC. Her preferred style is contemporary classical realism. She works primarily in oil and almost exclusively from life. Madeline does not restrict her subject matter and often finds inspiration in everyday life. She enjoys working plein-air and often creates oil sketches to be used in larger landscape paintings. Madeline is an award winning member of the Salmagundi Club in New York City where she regularly shows her work. She is also an elected artist member of the Academic Artistís Association and the American Artistís Professional League. She has won dozens of awards for her paintings both regionally and nationally.
