Meredith Wolf

Meredith Wolf

Meredith Wolf’s latest exhibition of abstract paintings is titled “Aura of Inner Spaces.” These paintings are influenced by the soul and its moods. “I am an intuitive painter, I do not attempt to portray a particular subject but to capture my inner emotions. I allow my subconscious the freedom to explore and create with no preconceived plan.”

Wolf, a New Jersey native, has a degree in textile design from Syracuse University and an art teaching certificate from Montclair State University. She has exhibited widely and her work is in many private and corporate collections.
