"Each landscape evokes a unique sense of place, time and emotion."
Originally from NYC, Carrie Megan began her career as a graphic designer and art director, where she worked for many years on branding and packaging for a diverse range of consumer products. Marriage and a position at Gillette as a design manager took her to the Boston area, where she settled and raised three children. Along the way, she discovered the exacting art of botanical drawing and painting, which lead her on a journey to capture the minute details and ephemeral beauty of plant life. After many years working as a botanical artist and teacher, she expanded her wings once again, to take in the broad vistas of nature through the art of landscape painting. This dramatic shift in focus from micro to macro, has informed a different approach to how she creates art, challenging her to look beyond the literal and to tap into a more visceral way of working. From the mountains to the sea, the diverse environments of New England inspires the work she does, both plein air and in her studio.
