Featured Artist Megan Lewis

Artsy Shark presents the work of featured artist Megan Lewis. She is currently a senior at Ringling College of Art and Design studying Illustration. In May she will have graduated with a degree in BFA. Check out her blog for more information about this emerging artist.



What are your goals?

My short-term goal is just to get my work out there and seen. I would love to have my work display at an exhibition. I am regularly in group shows, but to be displayed as a solo artist would be ideal. Becoming my own artist, and having my own voice is important too. My artwork up to this point has been assigned, but after I graduate I will have more time to do my work and hope to really blossom and grow into my own style of art.



What are you working on now?

Well, right now I am working on my senior theses entitled “Good Times” That’s all that I can share with you, but just know that I am very excited and can’t wait for everyone to see it in May.  I am also finishing two other illustrations that were assigned in my advanced media and advanced computer illustration class, both being two of my favorite classes that I have ever taking as a student.  For now, when I do have time I like to do small portrait painting, 12 x 12 sizes.



What inspires you?

I am inspired by everyday moments and experiences, simply ones. The whole world is a giant experience and anything can spark an idea for me. I can say that music is a big part of my creative process; I listen to a lot of R&B soul while I work.




My favorite Artist that I look up to is the late Ernie Barnes. His work displays the same moments that I like to portray. My work can only blossom from this point, and that makes me really excited about my future.  I can’t wait to get out there!
