About the Artist

 Mery Logerstedt Swanson born in Idaho, has lived mostly in the Pacific Northwest and finds inspiration from the delicate colors and light of coastal Washington.  “There’s a wonderful progression of natural and beautiful experiences occurring during every season of the year.”

 She studied art by correspondence as a youth and drew images of people, animals and landscape wherever she was.  In college, she did classmates portraits, and later recorded her children’s lives in her sketch books.

 She says, “My first contact with watercolor, I was hooked. It’s  spontaneous, simple, but also complicated; it has completely captured my interest.”

 She teaches beginning watercolor classes, shows in local galleries, and volunteers as Director of the Art Promotion Group of ‘Our Aberdeen’, a nonprofit  ‘embracing projects that build pride in Aberdeen’.
