ARTIST STATEMENT
Megan enjoys pioneering new techniques in creating art and is inspired by repurposed and unconventional media. She freely tosses and carefully applies copier toner onto pronto plates, then manipulates the powder with brushes, erasers, and smudge tools to form her powdery images. She also builds her own canvases with repurposed coffee bags from local roasters and then draws on the knobbly surfaces with oil pastels. Megan enjoys working with these materials because it gives her art unique textures, colors and ways to express her visions.
