Woodland paths, secret gardens and the open countryside all beckon Megan Lewis’ attention. The fascinating beauty of God’s creation, as it merges with ordinary life, provides an infinite resource for Megan’s work.
“I was blessed with parents who wanted their children to see and experience all this great country has to offer. Our hometown of Kansas City served as a wonderful jumping off point for our many adventures. By the time I graduated from high school we had camped in every state except Alaska and Hawaii, backpacked over miles of mountain trails and sailed most of the lakes in the Midwest. These experiences became a great source of inspiration for me.”
In 1982 Megan graduated from the University of Kansas with a BFA in painting. She spent the next three months exploring Europe and it’s many art treasures before packing up and moving west to Colorado. It was there that she began to pursue her love of painting full time. Megan currently lives in central Arkansas with her husband and their son, where she has her studio. When the weather allows, she enjoys painting the Arkansas countryside en plein air.
