      Olga Merrill is an award-winning Maine based self-taught visual artist primarily using the medium of photography. She was born in the Far East of Russia on April, 1971. She graduated from Samara State University of Economics in 1992 and Samara State University in 1996. She lived and worked in Russia until March of 2013, when she came to Maine, USA and life changed. At the end of 2015, her life changed even more – she got a photo camera and her view of the world became different through lenses. Photography was a hobby for her father, and she remembers the smell of chemicals from being with him in his darkroom. Who knew that after more than 35 years from her first brief touch of photography, she would become an artist and visual art started playing a significant role in her life?

     Her works have been shown at many galleries around the United States and in Europe. She was featured in l’Oeil de la Photographie, Dodho and YourdDailyPhotograph among others. Olga’s limited and open edition prints are available at galleries and held by private collectors throughout the world.
