Meghan Burke was born in Birmingham, AL and attended UAB, receiving a B.A. in art and a minor in art history in 2012. Burke’s artwork is about the world of fantasy and delving into the legends, myths and folklore of different cultures. She is fascinated by the human psyche, its influence on storytelling and its enthrallment with the occult and the macabre.
Working primarily with a blending of watercolor and ink, she seeks to stimulate a sense of childlike wonder in the viewer. Her work is very vibrant at times, mixing in a pearlescence into the watercolors to contribute to the fantasy world she creates, and she uses this vibrance to pop with the darkness of the smoky ink she weaves into it.
