Megan Richard is a water-media artist living in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. The abundance of natural beauty in the region as well as impressions taken while living near the shores of the Chesapeake Bay, hiking in the Cascades and Adirondacks, and endless summers spent on the shores of Lake Huron have all influenced her work.
Megan's paintings depict ethereal mountain vistas, expansive starlit skies, woodland landscapes, and sunlit waters. Her landscapes evoke a quiet sense of time and place.
Megan finds joy in the process of painting, discovering new techniques to create works with interesting textures and colors.
Megan comes from a creative family. She has paintings and photography hanging in her home by her daughter, sons, mother, father, grandmother and great grandmother.
Megan has a B.A. in Fine Arts from Ohio Wesleyan University. She has studied watercolor painting at the Studio School at Annmarie Sculpture Garden in Solomons, Maryland and has taken classes at the Art League School in Alexandria, Virginia.
Megan's artwork was featured on the cover of the Laurel of Asheville in March 2017.
