Megan Marie Myers is a painter, illustrator, and native Oregonian. Her painting studio is walking distance from downtown Bend. A love of the outdoors is her constant inspiration; when she is not painting, she is out exploring trails and running in the Oregon outback.
Myers’ work explores themes of companionship, protections, wilderness and the greatest adventure of all, love. She typically uses children and animals as her central figures. Her intention is to represent the limitless sense of wonder, the yearning to explore, and the resilience that each of us carry within. The characters in her work roam through Oregon landscapes, inspired by our region’s mountains, forests, deserts, rock formations, and rivers.
After spending a decade working in arts administration in Seattle, Myers moved to Portland in 2012. There, she began to focus on her own work and build a business creating original artwork, fine art prints, and greeting cards. In early 2016, she relocated again to Bend, bringing her closer to the outdoors where she relishes exploration, the foundation of her artwork. All of Myers’ work is painted by hand.
