Artist / Personal Statement
“My faith plays a huge part in my passion for the Arts and for drawing. I have been a Christian since 2005 and a disciple of Jesus Christ since 2010. God has opened many doors in my life, and none more exciting than my admittance to be an Artist-In-Residence at Studio Channel Islands Art Center (SCIART). I know God has given me a gift of creativity and a passion for drawing, and I am excited to move forward as a emerging artist following God’s call on my life.”
Native to Southern California, Megan McTavish has been a resident in Camarillo since 1998. She graduated from Humboldt State University in 2010 with a Bachelors Degree in Art and in August of 2012 she became an artist-in-residence at Studio Channel Islands Art Center in Camarillo, California.
Megan has always loved to draw. Throughout her childhood and teen years she would draw every cartoon she could get her hands on, usually Disney and Anime characters. Her observational skills developed as she tried to duplicate the cartoon characters exactly as they were in the pictures. This challenge eventually turned into a love for drawing photorealism. While pursuing her Art Degree, Megan became fascinated with the human face and figure. Now she is developing her skills as a fine artist, using pencils to draw the connection between the couples, families, and friends depicted in her drawings.
