Megan Woodard Johnson - Details

Megan Woodard Johnson builds up dense layers of different materials, including acrylic paint, oil pastels, graphite, charcoal, vintage papers, colored papers, and whatever else is within reach. Megan explores memories and personal histories and transforms these experiences into the hidden layers of her work. Listen as we talk schnibbles, her striped shirt, and all the tiny details.


Takeaways

1. Let your field go fallow for a while. Step away from it and allow things to percolate.

2. If you get to the point where you're not able to tap into that pure place where you’re “just making the work because you love it”  then the work suffers and the whole thing starts to fall down.

3. You’re the only one who can take your shower.

4. Having different stages of your artwork in your back pocket allows you to work on some aspect of your art regardless of your emotional or mental or physical state.
