 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 child and drew the 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, “When I found watercolor, I was amazed.  Spontaneous, simple, and also complicated; it has completely captured my interest.” Mery teaches beginning watercolor classes occasionally in her studio in  Aberdeen, WA. Originals, cards and prints are available.
