Megan Beland is A Canadian Born Artist who completed her study with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University Of Alberta. Working primarily in acrylic, she is now a visual artist who currently specializes in creating custom and professionally crafted pet portraits. As well as a conceptual and visual fine artist, she specialize in painting and intermedia art practises. Her focus is in performance and creating wearable art, serving as an extension of identity and experience. The physical interaction of the art with the body functions as the performance element, the temporal and temporary portion which only exists in the moment. She is also interested in how the passage of time impacts people, as well as how things exist within the context of their environments. Inspiration often comes from myths and fairytales, combining metaphor and reality. Childhood provides her with many found objects, also a source of inspiration and meaning, while creating a dialogue that generates an awareness of what is perceived as the “other ” in society. This awareness questions what is considered normal.
