Meg is an artist and educator with over a decade of experience. She earned a BA in Visual Art from Luther College and went on to earn a Masters of Education in Creative Arts from Lesley University. Meg works out of her home studio in the vibrant Longfellow neighborhood of South Minneapolis.
She loves bookbinding, mixed media painting and teaching budding artists of all ages and abilities.
Meg’s work is inspired by nature and the accessibility of outdoor spaces in Minneapolis area. She finds beauty in the discarded (broken books, old windows, yellowed paper). Meg is especially drawn to old and broken books integrating parts of salvaged books into all of her work.
Meg passionately believes that absolutely everyone can learn to draw, paint, sculpt and be creative with the right guidance and support. Meg’s students gain skills and confidence through intentional, concrete demonstrations and use of quality professional art materials.
Meg is available for group and private art lessons for folks of all ages out of her home studio or on location. She is also available for art residencies (through Artstart), workshops, murals and commissioned artwork. You can find her weekly at Junket: Tossed and Found where she teaches free, drop in classes, focusing on the use of salvaged and repurposed materials.
And if a quick drop in class isn’t enough, you can find Meg’s adult workshop and class offerings at ArtStart. Current options include bookbinding, paper decorating, suminagashi and printmaking.
