Meghan Howland Style use the figure and nature to create complex emotional imagery from a contemporary viewpoint.
“I” grew up in a small town in southern New Hampshire called Kingston. My family traveled to Maine a lot in the summer and I’d always felt a huge draw to live there. Currently I am living and working in the small but eccentric coastal city of Portland, ME. The city’s motto is Resurgam, which is Latin for “I will rise again”, I think because of the city having burned down so many times and being rebuilt. It isn’t why I moved here, but it seems fitting. For me it was the perfect place for exploring creative ideas and building up a sense of community around those ideas, be it visual art or music. It’s so supportive yet I find people here to be refreshingly honest and to the point about things. I like being so invested in those communities here. It’s also nice geographically because you can be close to nature without being isolated from the city “, Meghan Howland
