About the Artist – Meryl Bell

Meryl-Bell-artist-native-australian-floraMeryl Bell was born in Bridgetown, in southern Western Australia.

She began painting Australian native flora in 1974, using oils and techniques similar to those of the great 17th century Dutch floral artists.

Meryl created all of her work from real life, growing or collecting fresh flowers throughout her travels. She worked closely with botanical experts to gather references and gain greater insight into the unique attributes of species.

Each of Meryl’s major paintings would take many months, or even years, to complete. At times, she would use a single-hair paintbrush to enable her to capture the exquisitely fine detail of her subjects.

As one of Australia’s foremost still life floral artists, Meryl’s paintings are featured in notable private collections around the world. Her superbly realistic images express their brilliant colour and forms with exceptional clarity and botanical accuracy.

Meryl passed away in 2009 after a brave fight with leukemia.

Bell Art aims to honour Meryl’s memory through these beautiful products that celebrate her work.
