As half of Megan’s family suffer from terrible hay-fever, she had to come up with a solution to replace the vase of freshly cut beautiful flowers on the dining table; that she so desired in her home each week. To replace that warm welcome feel that flowers so easily offer. The solution was to paint large canvasses of flowers – bunches and bunches of flowers, therefore giving and creating the so desired emotion.
Barrass’s other subject matter is clearly a reflection of her surroundings. Scenes that we all experience, capture her attention, drawing the viewer in to focus on and explore the moment. By using both small sketches and photography for her observational studies, Megan will collage the moments together by applying many layers of acrylic paint to the canvas to construct a narrative. Through her paintings, she is able to uplift and transform an environment.
Megan’s paintings, with her perceptive eye and professionalism have attracted major private and corporate clients.
Megan Barrass is a contemporary artist, best known for her distinctive floral works and her typically Australian coastal-themed paintings, working with luscious coloured brush strokes of acrylic paint onto large scale canvases.
Her aim is to create artworks with an emotional connection, so others can visually share the passion and optimism.
