Megan Hazen -Artist


 Megan Hazen is an acrylic painter on wood panels. Recently, she has began incorporating wood burning into these paintings, as a way to add another layer of dimension to the images. Hazen's paintings are of animals and places that remind her of home. Each piece is a part of a memory that makes up a whole.

The experience of painting fuels my passion for life and the creation of new memories in the constant search for inspiration.
