ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Megan Fiely

Crab Nebula

MEGAN FIELY

18 x 24
$195 
 
Megan Fiely is a visual artist residing in Dayton’s South Park neighborhood. Previously, Megan lived in Colorado and Kansas and is inspired by those landscapes, but even more so by the landscapes here in Ohio.  Since returning to the area three years ago Megan been intensely inspired by the plant life and nature that resides inside of the city.
 
Expressing her relationship with the world through painting is what motivates Megan. Specifically, Megan tries to portray the way she perceives light and sound as it moves through space, as well as an obvious love of bright color. But her art is not simply about arriving at and admiring a final product, as Megan is very much immersed in the process and struggle of creation. This leads to her philosophy and mission statement: 
 
“I believe that humans should create daily. We should be building, digging, writing, singing, sculpting, or cooking a perfect meal! There is something therapeutic and transcendental in the creative process. Sometimes I think it’s cortisol release, other times I’m sure I’m communing with the universe. In any case, I know am addicted to the dreamlike feeling I arrive at after uninterrupted hours of painting. Leaving the studio, I have processed many unrelated thoughts while seemingly thinking of nothing but color and shape. My goal is to inspire others to engage their subconscious through art.”
 
When painting isn’t calling Megan as strongly, she also enjoys knitting colorful hats and sewing modern quilts, along with a love the slowest of performance arts: gardening. Megan would love to see people wearing and surrounding themselves with a lot more color and allow herself to indulge in as much of it as possible. That certainly is apparent in her art. 
 
Megan hold a Masters of Arts in Policy History from Bowling Green State University.
 
We hope you enjoy her work!
