Studios On the Park: Studio of Anna Meyrick and Eve Chartrand

Some artists who share studios, for example Anne Laddon  and Tamara Thornton, work with the same media. Though they have  different styles and subjects, they use similar materials. If you enter the studio shared by Eve Chartrand and Anna Meyrick,  however, their walls show art  quite different  in both method and style. Let's look at Eve Provost Chartrand first.

Eve collects objects that speak  to her in a special way. As she thinks about them, ideas form as to how to use them to express art worthy of reflection. She often mixes media to express her ideas, or she may make a print, lightbox, or assemblage. You can see examples of all these types of work on her web site. To see these photos in more detail, just click to enlarge them.

Anna Meyrick's half of the studio is quite different than Eve's. As you can see, Anna's specialty is her mosaic art, though she also draws and paints. She has been involved in art education for over twenty years. She has used her artistic creativity to help those with special needs and at-risk young people.

Here are some of her other mosaics on her wall at Studios on the Park.  Learn more about her on her website.
