Picture Perfect w/ Art By Megan

After a July stay at the Montauk Beach House, Brooklyn based artist Megan Elizabeth created a series of original watercolor illustrations. Megan says, “I was inspired by the modern, clean lines of MBH and Poolside Collective, with the fun, modern and sophisticated accents in architecture, decor and design,” adding that she loves “the artsy, open, free environment of Montauk.” The postcards are $35 each and available at our on site curated boutique, Poolside Collective, for the rest of the season.

Megan Elizabeth grew up in Maryland just outside of DC, enjoying childhood summers swimming in lakes and at the beach and always exploring outdoors.  Her elegant, feminine and often abstract artwork is inspired by her travels all over the world.  Megan has lived abroad in Spain and traveled much of Europe and the Caribbean, collecting her impressions and memories from each place.  Megan studied both Spanish and Art, which have led to a life full of adventure! She has taught high school Spanish and Art in DC and Baltimore, while working as an artist part-time and is now pursuing her dream of working primarily as a painter and illustrator.  Megan currently resides in Brooklyn, NY with her family.

Artist’s statement:

My paintings are each a memory.  So often, I visit a place and immediately look around and think, “I will paint this moment”.  Whether it is a beach scene, beautiful flowers in a tote bag on the subway, or a simple moment walking in nature, I collect memories and turn them into my paintings.   My works reflect an attitude of experimentation and a curiosity regarding the beauty created by the transparency and overlapping of ideas. Inspiration for all of my artwork comes from waterscapes, sunsets, bright colors in nature, and the silhouettes created by extreme light or darkness.  I absolutely love working as a painter and am constantly exploring new ideas in my work.
