As a young art student inspired by a love of interior design, Megan Adams Brooks began painting interiorscapes of fine homes. Delighted by the interpretations of fabrics and patterns that emerged, and curious about printmaking and textile design, she spent the next several years studying and experimenting with materials and techniques. Today, this evolution reveals itself in her signature silk paintings and fabric designs.
Her passion for painting on silk and the subsequent unexpected challenges and happy accidents create a striking final product, similar in many ways to watercolor painting. The endlessly inventive process fulfills the artist's obsession to create, resulting in a unique method of self-expression.
In addition to Megan’s silk paintings and textile designs, her experimentation of printmaking methods and fiber techniques led to the creation of works on paper. This medium communicates expression through movement that differs from her other processes, yet reveals a finished product characteristic of her work.
Brooks’ work has been exhibited at The Dallas Contemporary and McKinney Avenue Contemporary (The MAC) in Dallas. Her paintings hang in public and private collections around the world. The Dallas-based artist received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting and drawing from Southern Methodist University and a Master of Fine Arts in Fibers from the University of North Texas.
