“I believe that expressing a unique view of reality is the gift and the imperative of the artist. Art
conveys both personal and universal truth, and in this way is essential.”
Meg Kaczyk paints from her Discovery Bay studio on the Olympic Peninsula, Washington.
Inspired by the natural beauty of the area and a deep desire to protect it, Meg’s current
thematic series include Water Ways: Homage to the Salish Sea, expressing its relationship to light,
land, and wind; Madrona which honors these trees, their sense of place and resilience; and Big
Fruit, celebrating the abundance of regional agriculture with larger than life harvest in still life
Meg Kaczyk began her creative career as an illustrator/designer in the Midwest. In the1980’s,
seeking arts community, she moved west to Portland, Oregon and then to Port Townsend,
Washington. Over the years, the precision of graphic design played counterpoint to her
painting, which emboldened the loose and fluid style of her work today.
“My work expresses the splendid reality of living. Energy that runs deeply through us is
presented in the emotion of line, color, texture and pattern – fluid experiences standing as
frames of life.”More of Meg's work can be found at megkaczyk.com.
