Meghan Ferrero spent her early years in rural Connecticut developing a love for the natural world. As a child she spent many hours exploring the forest and wetlands near her home and collecting plants, birds’ nests, and animal bones. Her interest in the growth and decay of organic life is reflected in her abstract works, which focus on the relationships between the macroscopic and the microscopic, landscapes and organ tissues.
She went to Montserrat College of Art for her BFA, and began to focus on storytelling; reinventing myths and folk tales and creating her own. She plays with form, context, and placement to evoke feelings of familiarity with the stories, but changes the form of the characters. It is important to her process to continuously explore and mix mediums, resulting in a varied body of work.
