Biography

Eve Mero is a Southern California designer and artist whose work has been influenced by the multiple interests in her life. Her earliest focused endeavor was in the field of music, in which she studied piano, voice, theory, and music literature at Baylor University. Later, her interests turned more towards the areas of history and English literature. She composed poetry, taught world history, and studied the history of art. Following an intense period of training and practice in the field of architectural design, she commenced her studio studies in art.

In her work as an architectural designer, her self-styled approach was distinctive for the ways it incorporated the techniques of musical composition into the creative process. In the Ojai project, architecture became like visual contrapuntal music.

Eve Mero’s art also has its roots in music, whether it be in the way she approaches the composition of a collage or in the styling of her oil paintings where rhythm and timbre often dominate. Her collage work tends towards the intellectual, her painting emphasizes the sensual, and her printmaking incorporates both.

Her work has been featured in the Los Angeles Times, Sunset Magazine, and a book by Knapp Press.

Her iconic girl image has appeared in numerous forms and media, including the screenprint "Violent Society" that was selected by UNESCO as the featured graphic for its Paris Symposium on "Violence and Its Causes."

Eve Mero is a member of the Los Angeles Printmaking Society and the Santa Barbara Printmakers.
