Very few individuals truly excel in a creative field. To excel to a level to be known and respected worldwide is even more unique. Meredith has excelled to worldwide recognition in not one, but two artistic areas. This is a look at her work as a visual artist.
Meredith d'Ambrosio is a renaissance woman who has won international critical acclaim and successfully combined careers in the visual and musical arts. She continues to delight those who have come to expect such a high degree of proficiency in her artistic offerings. Her watercolors, black pencil studies, and egg shell mosaics grace the covers of cds, magazines, and books. She has shown herself to be, if not an iconoclast, then at least someone who is comfortable enough with her own sense of self to challenge the mainstream concept of popularity without sacrificing her considerable talent. Her distinctive style is a refreshing change from the more conventional offerings of her contemporaries. As she continues to touch the world with her impressionistic brush strokes, one can be sure that the creativity of Meredith d'Ambrosio will bring enjoyment to those discerning enough to appreciate a talent which successfully combines artistry and rhythm.

Her eggshell mosaics, a technique d'Ambrosio developed in 1959, were included in the book Making Mosaics by Beatrice Freeman-Lewis, Drake Publishers, N.Y.
In 1981 Boston's prestigious Copley Society awarded Meredith a Copley Master for Life.
A video documentary produced in Collias, France entitled Meredith d'Ambrosio portrays her as a musician, composer, watercolorist, and eggshell mosaicist, and was released internationally in 1988.
