Meghan Monaghan is an emerging artist who lives and works in Toronto. She graduated from OCAD University in 2006, winning the prestigious OCAD Medal for Drawing and Painting. Her work is influenced by the examination and inspection of natural forms; from plant life to rocks and minerals. Meghan creates mixed media paintings on wood, layering materials such as acrylic paint, oil pastel and pencil. The variety in Meghan’s materials results in a juxtaposition of techniques. Intricate line drawings, realism and raw mark making all exist simultaneously, resulting in abstraction that is rooted in the study of the natural world.
