Megan comes from a long line of artsy women. Her mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother were all talented artists. Megan finds inspiration for her artwork from the natural world. Hours spent walking in the woods behind her home in Port Republic, hiking in the Cascades and Adirondacks with her three children and husband, and long summers spent on Manitoulin Island in Lake Huron have all influenced her work.
Megan is primarily a watermedia artist but also likes to add elements of collage and printing to her work. She finds joy in the process of painting, discovering new techniques to create works with interesting textures and colors. In her current paintings, Megan is focusing on landscapes and images of the forest: trees, songbirds, and ferns. Using an imprinting technique Megan has incorporated “fossil” images into some of her works as a tribute to her father who is a paleontologist.
Megan has a B.A. in Fine Arts from Ohio Wesleyan University. She has studied watercolor painting at the Studio School at Annmarie Garden in Dowell, MD and at the Art League School in Alexandria, VA. Megan volunteers at Annmarie Garden and is a member of the Calvert Artist’s Guild. Megan is currently showing her artwork at the CalvART Gallery in Prince Frederick, Friday’s Creek Winery in Owings and the Annmarie Garden Gift Shop in Dowell. Megan is also a certified Montessori teacher. She spent many rewarding years in the classroom encouraging the creative endeavors of her students.
