About the Artist:
Megan is a painter based in Peterborough, where she established her practice after graduating from OCAD University (2012) with a BFA in Drawing & Painting. The final year of her program was completed at OCADU’s studio in Florence, Italy.

Megan works primarily in oils, but she also makes frequent use of acrylics, drawing materials, collage, and digital processes. A wide variety of subject matter is represented in her practice. Responding to season and mood, emotionality is conveyed by the changeability of weather as well as the symbolic and visual aspects of natural cycles.

Recent still life pieces refer to traditional painting processes and celebrate the poetic qualities of everyday objects. Often working directly from observation, rich palettes and painterly brushstrokes establish a sense of character. Slight exaggeration of hue and playfulness around the edges of each form add nuance and movement to quiet compositions.
