Paint has the ability to uncover the spirit of the subject and the soulful relationship between the viewer and the painted individual, and between the admirer and the idol. Unconventional color pairings are matched with innovative acrylic and oil techniques: thick application of paint over washy backgrounds, bold strokes that seem to be magnetically beamed onto the canvas.

Megan FitzGerald spent 5 years as an art teacher for children, an opportunity that enabled her to view the world with the same innocent spirit as the young artists she worked with. Through two years of fine art training in College and another 3 years in University, Megan worked to keep this curiosity and wonderment in every art piece she approached. In 2015, she moved to Florence, Italy, deepening her artistic practice and exhibiting in the company of the renaissance masters and rolling hills of Tuscany. Together, the impressive landscapes and renowned figurative artworks that saturated the city began to seep into her artistic psyche. Returning to Montreal, Megan began a series of Tuscan landscape works, culminating in a sold out solo exhibition.

Today, she continues to produce landscape and portrait paintings in her home studio as well as pursue other ventures such as public art installations, commissioned portraits and most recently, a self-curated exhibition that culminated in a silent auction for a local charity.
