Announcing the art of Meg Harper!Posted on : April 29, 2013
Meg Harper’s art is a colorful, fun, refreshing UPcycled approach to fine art. She reduces her impact on the earth by using innovative reclaimed materials like old tin roof, shutters, street signs, and cupboard doors as her canvas. Her contemporary approach is fresh, stylized, adorable, inspirational and energizing. You can’t help but feel good after seeing them. Her unexpected, vibrant colors magically transform her animals, people and nature to a fantasy world for the young at heart.
Meg received BA in Painting from the State University of New York at Cortland and have been painting for over 20 years.
She retired from a partnership position at a top 5 Ad agency in Phoenix, Larry John Wright, Inc. to paint full time in 2003. She has never looked back spreading joy, love and laughter to her ever growing national and international collectors. She lives in Mesa, AZ with her husband Tory.
