Featured Member Artist: Megan Driscoll

Artist's Statement:
Megan Driscoll is a Philadelphia based artist that works with acrylic, watercolor, marker, and pencil to create atypical spaces and landscapes.  Her paintings intuitively evolve over time with layers of pattern, visible brush strokes, and a vibrant color palette.  She “builds” these curious landscapes by painting bricks or blocks or diamonds to build walls and then breaks through them with contrasting color and pattern.  Often her compositions hurl bricks into space.

Megan received her BFA from Tyler School of Art, Temple University and her BSN from Thomas Jefferson University’s School of Nursing.  She also received an Arts in Healthcare certificate from the Art and Quality of Life Research Center, Temple University.  Megan is an oncology nurse and a painter who finds connections between her worlds of art and science.
