Born and raised in Colorado, Megan's understanding of artistic beauty flourished with her experiences of going to art shows and galleries with her parents. Megan has always had a passion for art. Growing up, she spent a great deal of time with her professional sculptor father and highly cerative and poetic mother comparing their view in artwork.
Megan attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and completed a BS in Education. Megan painted off and on in college, but it wasn't until her late twenties that she decided to pursue painting more fervently. Megan's bold brush strokes of intense color are the artist's trademark. She uses a variety of colors, shapes and textures with great enthusiasm. Her paintings appear in an uncontrived composition and are explorations of color and her own interpretation of the subject matter. Megan has taken a page out of the book on abstract expressionism and combined that with her unique rendition of animals and birds from nature. Abstaction and reality along with an uncanny ability to intuitively understand color and color theory combined with wonderfully textured surfaces make her work powerfully indiviual and distinctive. It is a stlye that eloquently speaks of yesterday, today and tomorrow.
Megan currently resides in Omaha, Nebraska. She has a small art studio in her home. In addition to her work being displayed here, she is also in The Noyes Art Gallery in Lincoln, Nebraska, Mary Mary Quite Contrary Gallery in Friend, Nebraska and Michael's on Main Gallery in Canon City, Colorado.
