Mera has always loved art, but it wasn't until she encountered the living God that she feels her art and skill level blossomed in new ways. Like in the story of Exodus where God gave skill to craftsmen and artists to build the sacred place He would meet again with His people, she believes artists are gifted with abilities to create art that allows one to encounter the living God; it is a meeting place, so to speak. Along with working in painting, Mera engages in chalk festivals where artists spend days on the asphalt creating large chalk murals in the streets. She feels that involving the public in the process of creating art is special for many reasons: emphasizing the importance of the arts within community and how beauty is a form of unity, crafting a universal language that speaks of the human experience we all live, and sharing in the spiritual and emotional journey no one can escape. Mera strives to put meaning into her artwork, yearning to express deeper messages within it and capturing the moments we can relate to one another in. As a mother, her three young children offer great inspiration for that. She and her husband Jeremy, who is a musician, collaborate with their skills often.
