bombed in 1940, the family left London and rented a house in Borth-y-Gest, Porthmadog, where they had spent many happy
family holidays in previous years. It was here, that they became friends with the Williams-Ellis family of Portmeirion.

a woodcut artist, although she also produced scultures and paintings in both oil and watercolour.
Meryl exhibited at The Royal Academy and all around the world, for The British Council.
