Meredith Mullins’ quiet moments of domestic tranquility

As a painter and professor living near Richmond, Virginia, I thrive in a whirlwind life with my husband, who is a fellow artist, and our three children. In contrast to the constant activity of my life, the unadorned women and girls in my oil paintings are portrayed in quiet moments of domesticity and reflection. The figures are a study of contemplation and transcendent calm. Ideas and symbols representing femininity, motherhood, childhood, growth and change appear in my work. Animals, nests and eggs that sometimes appear along with the figures are fondly called Nestlings and Familiars. ~Meredith Mullins
