Currently her work is mainly concerned with the sea and paintings inspired by her many trips to Paris and the South of France, where she paints extensively.

On the occasion youthful enthusiasm was soon replaced by bitter disappointment when Merry discovered that there was not an original piece of artwork by Van Gogh to be seen in Arles.

When in Arles again recently, with emotions somewhat tempered she was again disappointed to discover that the so called, 'Pont de Van Gogh' is not in the original location as depicted in his paintings nor is it the original bridge.

 'I was somewhat consoled by the fact that it is similar in desighn to the original, 'Pont de Langlois' and it is on the correct canal. The sun beamed down, oit was lovely place to paint especially knowing that the great artist himslef had grappled with similar disalonals, horizontals and verticals, says Merry.

She was inspired by the late Ruskin Spear to become  a professional artist while at Hammersmith Art College following studies at Notre Dame College in Liverpool and London University.
