OUR ARTISTS FOR NOVEMBER 3:
PAINTER: MEGAN RICHARD
Megan Richard is a water-media artist living in the beautiful coastal town of Beaufort, NC. Megan recently moved to Beaufort from the Asheville area where she lived for eight years, painting the mountains and forests of the region. She feels so fortunate to live in North Carolina with its spectacular vistas on either end of the state. The regions are so diverse and beautiful in their own way. Moving to the coast with its sparkling waters, sea breezes, sandy beaches, water birds, seashells, glorious blue skies, marshes and eastern forests have all provided inspiration and joy.
Watercolor is Megan’s primary medium. She loves the unpredictable nature of watercolor and the translucency it creates. Painting for Megan is an experimental and meditative process, translating visual impressions and feelings into art. Megan also creates paintings using fluid acrylics on wood and occasionally adds elements of collage to her paintings.
Megan was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan and grew up in Delaware, Ohio with her parents, 3 siblings and grandmother. Her parents encouraged creativity through art, music, dance and gardening. Megan has a Fine Arts degree from Ohio Wesleyan University and took classes at the Art League School in Alexandria, VA. She lived in Maryland for 30 years where she raised 3 children and worked as a Montessori teacher. For the past 10 years Megan has been living her dream…the life of an artist.
Megan’s work can be seen at the Mattie King Davis Gallery in Beaufort, Salt Gallery in Morehead City and the Port Of Call Museum Store at the NC Marine Museum.
She is also represented in the mountains by Silver Fox Gallery in Hendersonville, NC and Twigs and Leaves Gallery in Waynesville, NC.
