Mercedes is a visual artist based out of Woodstock. She has an Honours degree in Psychology which constantly provides her with new insights on how to view, understand, appreciate, and respect individuals. She also majored in Art History and Studio Art.
Her preferred medium of chalk pastel helps look beyond the flesh and blood of strangers, getting to know them through their physical features instead of judgemental rumors, opinions, and beliefs. It is an opening to a new world that is both a liberating and frightening exploration of the human mind and heart.
Mercedes is a member of Central Ontario Art Association, Artists of Oxford, The Woodstock Art Gallery, and a volunteer at The Woodstock Art Gallery.
Mercedes is available for commissioned artwork.
