Merrian Dennis is a visual artist living in country Victoria. Merrian has formal qualifications in Ceramics and the Visual Arts from the Ballarat University.
Her work is described as expressionistic with a strong use of line and form; clearly influenced by her background working in clay. Merrian’s artwork reflects the rural volcanic landscape of the Western District, the female form of the wide horizon and discarded natural objects. Her studio is situated at Lake Gnotuk in Western Victoria.
