I am drawn to the timelessness of the human figure as the focal point of a painting. I find people to be my biggest source of inspiration. This appreciation extends also to the students I am honored to teach. I never quite know where the art class will take us and what skills will be honed to match the inspiration the student has, but on many occasions we both are wonderfully surprised by the results. I design each lesson to inspire and encourage the student . The techniques will come with time but it takes inspiration to get there!

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.

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
