Merritt is emotionally influenced by music. Music has been a large influence on her life...teaching her teamwork, humility, and love for the power of song. Merritt creates glass "lyrics" based on influencial songs, in which she hand letters onto the back side of the piece...as a secret, meaningful message "behind" the artwork.
Inspired by the beautiful lyrics of "Black" by Pearl Jam:
"Sheets of empty canvas, untouched sheets of clay
Were laid spread out before me, as her body once did
All five horizons revolved around her soul, as the earth to the sun
Now the air I tasted and breathed has taken a turn "
