In 2016 Meredith set out to follow the Brisbane River from its beginnings at Mt Stanley to the end at Moreton Bay, the result was a successful exhibition of 30 paintings. In 2018, Meredith exhibited 90 works in a solo exhibition called Sublime Landscape at Lockyer Valley Regional Gallery, Queensland. "Inspired by the beauty of landscape worldwide, I try to give the landscape paintings a dramatic feel, drawing the viewer into the painting. I want you to feel you are within the painting and feel the cool depths, the power charge of a incoming storm, the warmth of the sun, or the salt in the ocean air" Meredith is currently working on a series of abstract paintings inspired by her childhood fascination with the colour and opalescence of Australian Opals. Meredith coined the words 'Australian Freestyle' to describe her painting style. Large, free flowing brushstrokes on large canvas, full of movement and feeling.
