Biography


 
"My goal as an artist is to translate the landscape, emphasizing what interests me most about a specific place at a moment in time. I want the viewer to see the world through my eyes. 

Known for landscapes drenched in light and color, Meg has won awards at major juried exhibits and plein air competitions. Though realistic in nature, her work has a strong abstract element characterized by simplified shapes, limited values, and glowing color. Her paintings have been purchased by the Academy Art Museum in Easton, MD, the National Institutes of Health, Georgetown University Hospital, Martha Jefferson Hospital in Charlottesville, Virginia, the town of Oxford, MD, and many private collectors.
  She is an elected member of the historic Washington Society of Landscape Painters and the Salmagundi Club in New York. Her paintings are featured in the book 100 Plein Air Painters of the Mid-Atlantic.
  Meg lives in Easton, Maryland.
