My name is Megan Levacy – I am an American artist who works with mixed media from my home in north Alabama. This blog is intended as an ongoing account of my studio practice and artistic process.
Although my work is varied in both media and execution, the central concept connecting the pieces I create is a search for identity and place. As I move through life I inhabit different internal and external landscapes; the ways in which I engage with each reflects a bit about who I am and how I see myself positioned within a larger picture. I document these moments of interaction as a way to learn more about myself and in doing so I hope to contribute to a greater understanding of the shared human experience.
After 5 years as a full time Assistant Professor of Art at Georgia State University, Perimeter College, in Atlanta, GA, I transitioned to teaching classes in art and the humanities for the college part-time online in 2017.
Jewelry and small paintings, drawings, embroidery hoops, jewelry, and mixed media works can be viewed and purchased at the Spruill Gallery & Gift Shop in Atlanta, GA.
An online store with my work, handcrafted items, and embroidery patterns is slated to open in 2020.
