About The Art
How can we put into words an experience of a place in the moment when you feel a sense of awe and peace and joy inside? You look down from the dock and see the life swaying below the water's surface and notice how beautiful it all is, how fresh the air smells and feels and how warm the sun is on your skin. It's the sensory experience you remember. I try to grab that in my paintings in the best way I can.
This special series has been inspired by and celebrate the forms, colors, and moods of my birthplace in coastal Maine. The original contemporary paintings are decidedly serene, sophisticated, sleek, upscale, crisp and timeless; a perfect heirloom to last for generations to come! www.megancartyart.com
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!
