About The Art
This print is from my gouache collage of a mother doe and her fawn in the spring atop a mint-green vintage radio. I recall, from my childhood, a similar radio from my grandparents' bedroom and I would look at it with wonder as I pondered the things they listened to on it. The mother and baby (doe and fawn) are a metaphor inferring the passage of time and the cycle of the seasons-- and of life. All that aside, this is a piece of art that just looks darn cool standing on the mantle in a rustic frame or in a child's nursery making a rustic-chic statement.
About the Artist
Hello there! My name is Megan Cassidy Carty. Balancing being an artist, a wife, and a mother is hard work; yet the best kind of work.
After a lifetime love of drawing and painting I studied art at Syracuse University's School of Art and Design where I focused on advertising. A B.F.A. later I went on to work for several years in both boutique design firms and corporate retail settings all while longing for my own artistic voice. Desperate to scratch my own creative itch, I began working for myself creating customized letterpress birth announcements and wedding invitations for lots of wonderful clients. Before too long and after a lot of turbulence my husband Chris and I started our family and I set my career aside so I could focus on my babies and take on the giant task of Mothering.
The aching need to create kept calling to me like the seductive Sirens so I picked up my easy-to-clean-and-carry paints and began making anything that made my heart smile. My whimsical and quirky spirit came to life in my creations and I knew this was what I was meant to be doing. My past work has been featured online at Design Sponge, Poppytalk, and Domino Magazine's website. I hope you like it too!
