Multimedia artist Megan Edwards is one of those artists we discovered by chance. I was going through Pinterest one day and saw her illustration for a book cover, and instantly fell in love with the art.
This piece in particular was for Kenneth Grahame’s book “The Wind in the Willows” – the combination of various mixed media grabbed my attention and sucked me in. It blended collage / assemblage art and painting, among others.
Looking at her website bio, it’s easy to see how Megan’s diverse style came into fruition. “I have always lived with the sea on one side of me and the countryside on the other. Both influence and inspire me endlessly,” she narrates.
Having been raised in Co. Wicklow, Ireland, she has moved several times – first to Lyme Regis in Dorset, and eventually to Falmouth where she graduated in May 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts Honours Degree in Illustration.
“I employ a range of media such as collage, ink, pencil and good old photoshop,” she says. “Narrative illustration is my passion and my work often aims to engage younger and older audiences alike.”
This unique style of hers allowed her art to be featured in numerous book covers and narratives, and is becoming a favorite for individuals and companies that want a fresher take on their posters and prints.
