“Olga Merrill’s photographs, ranging from her native Russia to southern Maine are both visually and intellectually stimulating. My spirits are lifted every morning when I revisit her work in my collection.” – Bruce Brown, curator and private collector, Maine, USA

Olga’s work captures the ephemeral threshold of the physical and spiritual world. Through her use of color, structure, and composition, she invites us to be fully engaged and mindful participants of the natural world.” – N. Bailey, Portland, Maine

After the session she follows up with written instructions, which is so helpful” – Kye Marshall, Toronto, Canada. Kye is a professional cellist, composer of classical and jazz music. Kye is a photographer as well.

“The moment I saw Olga’s photograph of Moscow it made my heart so full remembering the wonderful time I had there with my daughter-in-laws family. It was the first print I have ever purchased and it is even more special as I met Olga and felt a special bond.” – Sandra Morris, Maine, USA

“We especially like Olga’s photographic style of combining our portrait with an image from nature. The result was a very unique, artistic image! It’s absolutely stunning! We love our portraits! Thank you, Olga!” – Charlie & Nadya, Saco, Maine, USA.

“I found Olga’s work while looking for ICM photography. When copies of Olga’s “Urban Spirits” and “Mystic Seas” books arrived, I was impressed with “Urban Spirits”, but -WOW- totally blown away by “Mystic Seas” and its Turneresque appeal. Excellent work, Olga” W. Watson, UK
