Meryl Blundell has a strong background in Design and has always been involved in the Visual Arts. She has an outstanding passion for textile and jewellery design. Her work is inspired by nature and her surroundings. Meryl was given her first camera when she was in Primary school (we’re talking pre-digital phones) by her parents’. The new collection of scarves captures memories and stories from places which have caught her attention. The 5 themes are snapshots of her world. My Parent’s garden – Artist’s statement . A 1920s bungalow in the Blue mountains set on three blocks of land which formed their seemingly modest garden. As an adult and taking more time to look after their garden, I started to see the details from my parents’ eyes. The fall of the land, the curves, the sandstone, the old trees and what the different seasons revealed. The scarves Blue Hydrangea and Green Hydrangea were designed to capture the feeling of the garden and it’s custodians.
