Biography

Megan Little, a multi-media artist based in Hamilton, ON, transforms paper, wire, and light into captivating sculptures that evoke joy and curiosity. She also works in multiple painting mediums to create lush emotive works of art. Holding a BA in Visual Arts from Houghton University and a Masters of Theological Studies from McMaster Divinity College, Megan seamlessly blends her artistic prowess with a vibrant biblically-grounded spiritual life.

Passionate about helping others connect to God through creativity and the arts, Megan also serves on staff with the Greater Ontario House of Prayer (GOHOP) in Hamilton Ontario, CA. With GOHOP, Megan co-founded Asah: Creativity & Prayer Studio – a regular gathering to bridge the divide between creativity and prayer. She is also developing other experiences and materials that intwine these dual interests.

Megan brings a wealth of experience to her current roles from her time in Nashville, TN, where Megan served as President and board member of Platetone, Printmaking, Book and Paper Arts, a non-profit print studio. Her dedication to arts and art community extended to teaching workshops at libraries, schools, and events with Turnip Green Creative Reuse, as well as conducting printmaking workshops for adults and children in the Nashville area.

Megan lived in Morocco with her family until she was 9 years old, where the blue Mediterranean skies and magical walled gardens imprinted into her heart. She lives now in an old red brick house with her darling cat, Raphael, and two fabulous friends who make the best baked goods!

Artist Statement

I believe that the richest and truest forms of art spring unashamedly from the soil at the center of a human being. The pulsing core of my life is not a solitary self-defined ‘me’ but rather a complex and beautiful friendship with my brother and the lover of my whole self: Jesus. My creative work is an attempt to give language to the great dance of love at the centre of my life; a humble yet fiercely determined act of visual and poetic storytelling.

My work also has a sense of playfulness and wonder to it, and I love to help people embrace their inner kid and encounter God in unexpected and unselfconscious ways. My impulses to explore, collect, and see the beauty in little things drive my inclusion of a variety of materials and found objects. I thrive in playful and experimental combinations of materials and techniques in ways I have not tried before or not seen others try.

Ultimately, my hope is encountering my work will make my audience curious and awaken their desire to encounter their Creator through beauty and in the joyful and messy act of creating.
