About The Artisan

Merrie’s studio is located in Cromwell CT, a small town along the banks of the Connecticut River, in close proximity to numerous farms, waterways and mountains. Merrie is self-taught and recognized in the art community, as one of the leading creative polymer artists. When not in the studio Merrie is an avid outdoors- woman; she loves to whitewater kayak, bike, ski, travel, and garden. 

“A perennial garden is a work in progress, much like art is. It’s all about my mood, the weather, plant location, soil, bugs, and my patience level!”, Merrie says. 

Every Merrily Made pen we sell is handmade in Connecticut.

The exterior finish of the gorgeous pens she crafts are made from ingredients grown right in her own organic gardens. Throughout the growing season she cuts flowers and botanicals from her garden and dries them. Once dehydrated, she grinds them and combines them with a transparent polymer. Once the pen is completed, you are actually seeing and feeling the actual plants harvested from her garden!
