Born in the Midwest, but raised in Oregon, Megan has also lived briefly in Colorado and Hawaii. She doesn't miss the mountains so much, but she does miss the island sun and sea. She would love to visit Asia or Europe on her next adventure.

Who is your favorite artist? 

I’ve always been fond of the golden age artist, Maxfield Parrish. I remember seeing prints of his work for the first time, Ecstasy and Daybreak, and fell in love with the saturated colors, use of shadow and light, and the triumphant, dreamy atmospheres.
