Biography

Meghan is a practicing photographic artist who lives and works, amidst domestic chaos, in Victoria, BC. She moved to the island in 2015 after finishing a three-year photography practicum internship at The Banff Centre, Banff, AB. Meghan obtained her Master of Fine Arts degree at the University of Windsor, Windsor, ON (2012) and she holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, SK (2005). Meghan has exhibited her work across Canada and the US, attended a self-directed Residency in Northern Iceland (2014) and the Toni Onley Artists' Project, Virtual Edition, through Island Mountain Arts, Wells, BC (2021). She received a Social Science and Humanities Research Council Scholarship, Ontario Graduate Scholarship, and a full tuition Scholarship while acquiring her masters degree. She has also been the recipient of a Saskatchewan Arts Board Independent Artists Project Grant, an Alberta Foundation for the Arts Visual Arts and New Media Individual Project Grant and a British Columbia Arts Council Professional Development Assistance Grant. Her current series, The Artist, is in response to the place she found herself in during the pandemic. Taking notice, via social media, of creative friends', peers and mentors' productive spaces, she began reaching out with the intent of connecting virtually for a photoshoot, regardless of how elaborate or makeshift each individual's spaces were. An intimacy is achieved in the images, as the viewer is allowed into these personal and private spaces during these strange times. Meghan has been teaching photography and beginner drawing at VISA since 2016.
