When I'm not exhibiting my own artwork, I enjoy teaching others what I have learned in over a decade of schooling. I have trained with some of the top artists in the industry and learned many of their secrets to share with you. My methods combine classical and modern art techniques in a fun, interesting and friendly way. Take a look at my portfolio images to see examples of my work in acrylic, oil, charcoal, graphite pencil and watercolor.

Had a great lesson with Megan. Got the basics of watercolor down to where I could actually paint a picture. Looking forward to seeing if I can create many more!
We had a basic first lesson in atmospheric perspective and painted a mountain landscape. Lesson was excellent!
I really enjoyed my first oil lesson. Megan is very knowledgeable and teaches in a way that is easy to understand. I feel like I can achieve my goals under Megan’s teaching skills.
My 10-year old daughter is a pretty passionate artist and wanted to be able to continue drawing lessons after we moved to a remote area. She's three lessons into drawing people (faces, specifically) with Megan, and loving it. Megan has been clear, patient and inspiring and my daughter feels proud of her work.Show More
Megan was delightful and I learned so much! I highly recommend taking a class with her.
I had a great lesson with Megan, she is o kind and patient .
The technology worked well, and Megan did a very good job. The first session exceeded my expectations.
Megan is wonderful working with my teenage daughter. She is fun and entertaining and the perfect fit!
Megan was very prepared. In one hour only she walked my daughter through creating an entire acrylic paint beach scene. My daughter enjoyed it very much.
Megan was engaging, genuine, and had an extremely well-prepared lesson for us to start with. I felt like I gained a lot of important perspective about art, in both a technical sense and regarding the mentality of creating art. Great teacher. Looking forward to another lesson.Show More
Megan is kind and patient, enthusiastic and well spoken. I’m looking forward to our next lesson!
We loved our experience working with Megan. It was exactly what we were looking for, and I was amazed by how much my daughter got out of just one lesson. Will definitely look forward to working w Megan again.
Amazing! I'm excited about finally being able to draw photorealism!
Megan is a fabulous teacher, dedicated to helping us explore and learn her art and the nuances of painting. She also has a very pleasant and sweet disposition - something that makes 4 self-critical new painters more at ease with the process.
Megan is very patient, easy going and super talented. The perfect instructor. I am an amateur and learned so much in just one lesson. Definitely booking more appointments.
Megan certainly tailored the lesson to my personal goals. She is very gentle and patient as well as skilled as an artist and as a teacher.
Megan was both professional and kind - clearly knows the subject well. I thought the approach to discuss the pillars of the content was a great idea and I am looking forward to the next lesson.
I made a last minute lesson with Megan as I panicked about a university project that I was in no way prepared for. She is a calming and professional energy that guides you along the first few movements. At the end of the class she summed up what the next steps would be, making sure to set me up for success. I will definitely be signing up again!Show More
Megan was great . We did a "group " lesson with my 90 year old mother who has painted her whole life, but has not in the past 5 or so years along with my 7 year old daughter who loves art. A great experience for granddaughter and grandmother to bond.Show More
She is great! I have learned a lot and had so much fun with her.
She refreshed my mind after 17 years of not touching any brush neither doing any sketching....
I highly recommend her and can't wait for her upcoming classes in her own studio!
Outstanding teacher! Took lessons with my kids. Megan is wonderful!
I had three other painting instructors before I came upon Megan's class and I will say she is the best painting teacher I have had and that does not come easy because I am a professional sculptor that has taught and taken many classes in the art field. Simply put Megan is at the top of her game and her style of teaching is one that most anybody will benefit from her classes.Show More
This was one of the best classes I have ever attended, in any subject, for the past 30 years. Megan is a brilliant and compassionate teacher. She made me feel like an artist. Thank you, Megan! --Katherine
