Water Carbons

ArtPrize 2017 is Upon Us!

Tomorrow, ArtPrize 9 opens in Grand Rapids, MI and it's my 4th time participating (!!). I spent the greater part of the last year working on my piece and I'm really excited to show it to everyone who visits The B.O.B. (the same venue who had me in 2015!). It was created with a pencil drawing, a watercolor underpainting, and then a final layer of carbon dust, ink & white chalk. 

Round one voting starts tomorrow and ends on the 30th - it's the most essential time for you to visit, if you want to vote for me. To that end, my voter ID is 64700 (you have to be in GR to vote... or at least to register)

Here are some images from the installation of my piece - Honey Gum Moss & Denim (click the title to view the project's webpage):

My TED Talk is Available on YouTube!

Hi! I'm so excited to announce that my art/science/life TEDx talk is now online! It was such an honor to be a part of the TED experience, truly.

Please click below or visit www.tinyurl.com/meganstedtalk to watch. If you love it and/or have feedback/thoughts, it'd be awesome to hear - please leave a comment here or on YouTube.

How does a person with an interest in the human eye combine both art and science? Megan Foldenauer became interested in the human eye as a child and has been drawing them ever since. Megan's interest in art and science led to her career as a biomedical Illustrator and multimedia specialist in the University Of Michigan Department Of Neurosurgery, where both skills serve her well.

EYES! One is Soooo 80s & One is a Tiny Modern Lover's Eye Prototype

...I'm not the best at titles. I AM good at drawing eyes, tho. Here ya go!

I'm Developing a New Technique (Samples Inside!)

Hoooo boy! Just typing that title makes my heart race a bit. EXCITING!

Above & below are some big-time "mixed media" drawings/paintings... by "big-time", I mean, take virtually everything I've used as a medium over the years and throw it together and voila! Here we are and I'm preliminarily calling them "water carbons".

I've done all of these in the last few days, that's how electrified this has me (and there's a 5th at the sketch stage as I type this, even - see below for a peek). I'm really interested to hear what you think, if you could leave a comment (or a heart), that'd be swell. #moreart
