Sydney Impressions

Sydney Impressions

My husband and I arrived in Sydney forty two years ago and I fell in love with Sydney instantly! With its magnificent position surrounding one of the most beautiful harbours in the world, who could resist this city’s charms?
But this is a diverse city not only boasting magnificent vistas and properties around the harbour. Think of quaint semi-detached houses in Paddington or Federation style homes in Mosman and Strathfield. Interspersed with these various architectural styles, Sydney planners did a wonderful job of wrapping suburbs around pockets of native bush which add to this city’s natural beauty.
Sydney is a city with it all – and is certainly an artist’s paradise!

An interior designer and journalist, Merilyn Chappel has been painting for over 25 years. Initially a watercolour artist, her work has evolved to encompass other mediums including acrylics and inks, but more recently mixed media. This foray into mixed media has resulted in uniquely textured, impressionistic works but these still exhibit Merilyn’s dramatic use of colour and design. Merilyn’s subject matter varies considerably from large dramatic landscapes to small interiors; from bold and colourful fruits to sensitively painted flowers; from Australian stockmen to French villages; from African giraffes to Australian dairy herds; from Sydney sailboats to outback towns – even shoes, hats and teacups have a look in!
