About the Artist

Megan is, among many other things, a former Emergency Medical Technician, a veteran of the United States Navy, a certified Scuba Diver, and a graduate of the Bachelor of Fine Arts program at Rhode Island College.  

 

A not so early comer to the world of art, she fell hopelessly and desperately in love with clay and the potter's wheel in a semester ceramics course at Dickinson College under the tutelage of Barbara Diduk.  In the years following, she picked up studio time and new skills in bits and pieces, and when the opportunity presented itself for a return to academia, she dedicated herself to the study of ceramics and jewelry metals.  

 

Megan's work takes inspiration from a variety of sources, among them the art of H.R. Giger, Louise Bourgeois, and Carrie Longley.  She is also deeply fascinated by anatomy and physiology, the creatures of the deepest darkest parts of the ocean, and all the things that go bump in the night.

 

When she isn't elbows deep in clay, she is most likely to be found hiking, hunting, or skiing in the mountains of her beloved home state of New Hampshire, or securely pinned down by her cats, a book in hand and a cup of coffee at her elbow.
