Merewyn began playing both violin and viola when she was little and was taught by her mother.
She completed a Bachelor of Music with Honours in Performance under the tutelage of William Hennessy and a Master of Music Performance mentored by Caroline Henbest.
Merewyn is Principal Viola of the Melbourne Chamber Orchestra and holds casual positions with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Victoria and the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra and has appeared as guest Principal Viola of the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra.
To quench her constant thirst for chamber music, Merewyn is a member of Quartz, a quartet with a big Victorian presence and which performs as part of a series at the Melbourne Recital Centre. Violist with the Patronus Quartet, Merewyn competed in the 2015 Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition and as a former member of the Tailem Quartet she was a finalist in the 3rd Australian Chamber Music Competition and performed in the 2008 ARD Chamber Music Competition in Munich. Merewyn has also been an Emerging Artist of the Australian Chamber Orchestra.
Away from the music stand, Merewyn reads and writes and alternates running long distances with buckling up the tap shoes.
