More about the artist: www.merrykohn.com.
Merry Kohn was born on December 26, 1951 in Fort Meade, Maryland, and currently resides on Monterey Peninsula. Having painted all her life, Merry is a self-taught artist and paints with a whimsical, yet uncompromising wit. The titles of her paintings usually indicate a joke or a story that has to be searched for in the canvas. Collected internationally, Merry's work has been shown across the United States, in Japan and Korea. Critics and audiences of naïve art have compared her to Michel Delacroix, Yamagata and Wysocki. Munsingwear commissioned her in 1986 to do the cover of their centennial annual report and, later that year, to do the poster for their Annual Munsingwear Bicycle Race in Crested Butte, Colorado. She has been displayed in the Sonje Museum of Contemporary Art with artists such as Grandma Moses, Henri Rousseau, Ivan Rabuzin and Mattie Lou O'Kelley. Her work was exhibited in a group show, at the Chicago Center For Self-Taught Art. She has produced puzzles, calendars, mugs, greeting cards and other items for many companies including Hallmark. zugerart.
