Megan Perkins is a recorder by nature. Keeping written journals and sketchbooks, drawing friends and her daily life has been a regular habit for years. To Megan, drawing and painting is a road to experiencing and truly seeing a place, object or person. Drawing is a way to absorb the beauty of the world around her, but also, a way to understand her surroundings, how an object is put together, why a building or configuration of light and shadow caught her eye. Art is a path into deeper understanding and communion with both places and people. It is a way of holding up the quotidian of life as worthy of attention and worth sharing with others. Megan reminds people to slow down and realize the richness of their own lives, available if they simply pay attention.
