a bit about me!



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.

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

My work comes out of a deep delight in creating and sharing beautiful things. When we bring good and beautiful things into the world, it is like planting seeds that will slowly grow into huge trees that will bring joy and shade to future generations.

When children are small, they experience the world around them with a fullness and exuberance - tracing leaves with their fingers, collecting rocks, splashing in puddles and wondering at the smallest of beauties. This way of being in the world deeply influences my creative process and imagery. It shows up in my eclectic papers and materials: ephemera I have collected along the way. It manifests in my playful and whimsical combinations of images and symbols.

The themes of home, belonging, and adventure originate in my own childhood. My earliest memories of wonder and awe were in Morocco, where the arid atlas mountains captured my heart, the dangerous ocean inspired awe, and delightful gardens surrounded by white walls and arched doors fired my imagination.

Weave into all of that a love of the magic light shed by stained glass windows in epic cathedrals, and a voracious appetite for epic stories both true and fantastical, and much of the inspiration behind my work comes into view.

My hope it create work that inspires joy and awakens child-like wonder.
