We're so pleased to welcome Megan Elizabeth of Art By Megan as our latest Mintwood Art Shop feature. Here's a little glimpse into Megan's life and background as an artist and the many places that she draws inspiration from.


Megan Elizabeth grew up in Maryland just outside of DC, enjoying childhood summers swimming in lakes and spending time at the beach; always exploring outdoors.  Her elegant, feminine and often abstract artwork is inspired by her travels all over the world.  Megan has lived abroad in Spain and traveled much of Europe and the Caribbean, collecting her impressions and memories from each place.  Megan studied both Spanish and Art, which have led to a life full of adventure! She has taught Spanish and Art in DC and Baltimore, while working as an artist part-time and is now pursuing her dream of working primarily as a painter and illustrator.  Megan currently resides in Brooklyn, NY with her family. 

"...I collect memories and turn them into my paintings."

"Inspiration for all of my artwork comes from waterscapes, sunsets, bright colors in nature juxtaposed with neutral tones, and the silhouettes created by extreme light or darkness."
