Meredith Joy Ostrom (born 18 February 1977) is an actress/model/Painter. From Swedish, German, English and Lithuanian descent. A graduate of New York University, Tisch school of the arts. She has emerged as an artist since 2007. Many of her paintings focus on her own female physical form impressed onto vividly painted canvas.

In December 2008 her work was exhibited at the Stanton Barrett Gallery in New York.

In March 2009 she had a successful sell-out exhibition of her paintings in London at Philips de Pury where the majority of the proceeds went to the Youth for Youth international children's charity. (Philips de Pury does not validate this, and witness accounts are that it was in a building adjacent to Philips but not affiliated in any way)

On April 27, 2009 she demonstrated her body painting to an audience of over 500 at Sketch in London's Mayfair. Appearing in silhouette behind a screen she used her body and various painting techniques to produce a painting which was then revealed to the assembled crowd. The painting was then acquired by Opera Gallery.

In March 2010 her work was included at Vegas Gallery in London's east end, in Keith Coventry's curated, 'Peep Show'a group show of paintings and photography alongside Tracy Emin, Keith Tyson, Alison Jackson, Dan Macmillan, Henry Hudson, Matt Collishaw and George Condo.


In London Meredith's paintings are now exhibited and sold in New Bond Street's Opera Gallery, in the company of many of her favorite modern artists such as Warhol, Picasso, Hirst, Dali and Chagall.

She played herself, showing her work process in a short film made by the artist Pauline Amos called 'Love Scars' screened in the short film section of the Cannes film festival.

As an actress she recently played the character Joany, muse to a conceptual artist, in the 2009 film (Boogie Woogie, based on the novel written by Danny Moynehan, a satire on the NY and London art worlds, for which Damien Hirst curated the art work in the film. She also appeared in the 2006 films Played and Factory Girl (playing the role of iconic German songbird/ muse of Andy Warhol Nico). She starred in the 2005 short film Bizarre Love Triangle, written and directed by George Hickenlooper. She appeared in a 2000 episode of Sex and the City.
